Brief Program Summary: PNC Grow Up Great® is a $500 million, multi-year, bilingual initiative that began in 2004 to help prepare children from birth to age 5 for success in school and life. To date, the program has supported more than 7 million children. Founded by The PNC Financial Services Group, Inc., and supported by the PNC Foundation, PNC Grow Up Great is a comprehensive, bilingual program designed to help prepare children – particularly underserved children – for success in school and life. Through the program, PNC emphasizes the importance of the first five years of life, which research has shown is critical to long-term achievement, and provides innovative opportunities that assist families, educators and community partners to enhance children’s learning and development. An investment in pre-K students makes good economic sense and plants the seeds for the dynamic workforce of tomorrow.
Success Metrics: Reading at level, being prepared for Kindergarten, and Grants for Great Hours earned by our employee volunteerism.
