$20,000 Grant From Citizens Bank Will Help Build Wealth Through Financial Empowerment

Mar 8, 2022

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Citizens Bank for their generous $20,000 grant that will help Neighborhood Allies foster Economic Opportunity through Fund My Future PGH, and the Financial Empowerment Center. Our economic opportunity work addresses racial, gender, and geographic inequities in income, wealth, and opportunity.

In 2021 alone, Fund My Future PGH served 1,600 families and gave away $12,000 in saving incentive prizes. The Financial Empowerment Center served 615 clients in 1,547 sessions–those clients accrued $629,000 in savings and reduced $1,504,000 in debt.

Our work would not be possible without the tremendous support of funders like Citizens Bank. Thank you for your continued commitment and investment as we engage Pittsburgh area residents and organizations with innovative tools that expand opportunity for transformative community change.
