The first five years of life are a magical time, when the world is full of wonder and possibilities. It’s also a time of opportunity, when young minds begin absorbing knowledge that forms the basis for all learning.
That’s why PNC Grow Up Great® and PNC Crezca con Éxito form a $350 million program dedicated to helping prepare America’s youngest learners for great things in school –- and life.
Every child deserves the opportunity to reach her fullest potential. PNC Grow Up Great gives her the encouragement and resources to help make it possible.
Since PNC began the program in 2004, PNC Grow Up Great has distributed more than $105 million in grants that help young children prepare for school by focusing on readiness in vocabulary development, math, science, financial education and the arts. Through these grants to nonprofit organizations, the program has impacted approximately 2.3 million children throughout 19 states and the District of Columbia.
PNC employees have volunteered more than 575,000 hours and donated more than 825,000 classroom items to help make PNC Grow Up Great’s vision a reality.
