Grow Up Great
PNC recognizes that success starts early, so it has made a 10-year, $100 million investment in PNC Grow Up Great, an initiative to help prepare children from birth to age five for success in school. The program has supported Head Start centers, nonprofit early childhood organizations, and institutions of higher learning to enhance the quality of early care and education for disadvantaged children. It is delivering tangible results. Science proficiency at the Council of Three Rivers American Indian Center in Pittsburgh jumped 19 percent in one year. Early math skills at the YMCA of North Philadelphia Head Start Program increased 14 percent in less than a year.
