Pittsburg, PA

About Us

SteelTree funds innovative social entrepreneurship projects that engage and benefit next generation donors to strengthen the continuity of the Pittsburgh Jewish community.

The SteelTree Fund is seeking applications for innovative ideas that help young adults find meaning and participation in Jewish life. Our SteelTree members are interested in funding projects and programs that have impact on the engagement of this young population in the Pittsburgh Jewish community. Special consideration will be given to applications whose work focuses on strengthening Jewish continuity.

The SteelTree Fund provides grants between $500 and $5,000 to projects that serve the Jewish community in the Pittsburgh area.

The SteelTree Fund, which combines support for the Jewish Federation’s annual campaign with support from the Federation’s Jewish Community Foundation, enables SteelTree board members to make a collective impact by designating micro-grants to local organizations and agencies.

SteelTree is actively recruiting new board members. Board members are young adults ages 22-45 who have a desire to make a difference in the Jewish community and a passion for venture philanthropy.
