The Edgewood Foundation in Pittsburgh

Monthly Board Meetings


Meetings are regularly held on the first Tuesday of the month at 7:30pm on the upper level of the C.C. Mellor Memorial Library.  No meeting is held in July.  Our meetings are open to the public, so feel free to stop by!

The Foundation encourages participation from all residents and groups in the Borough of Edgewood.

Our volunteer Board of Directors typically consists of nine residents: the Mayor or the Mayor's designee, a representative from the Borough Council and seven members-at-large.


Chartered in 1984 as a not-for-profit organization, the Edgewood Foundation arose from the merging of the Edgewood School District with others into the Woodland Hills School District. Monies remaining in the residents’ legal fund, established to preserve the Borough’s schools, were directed to the new organization by the original donors. It was their hope that a central institution of social and cultural activity would provide some of the civic amenities historically afforded by the Edgewood Schools.
The Foundation’s capital funds are invested by The Pittsburgh Foundation. It is the Foundation’s long-range goal to build this capital fund to a point where its ongoing projects and programs can be self-supporting.


The Foundation has been proud to fund such community improvements and programs in the past as: 

  • The Koenig Field playground, in conjunction with the Borough of Edgewood
  • The Edgewood Borough entry signs
  • A hay wagon for the Recreation Department
  • Live theater presentations
  • An Edgewood photography contest
  • Edgewood calendars, including one celebrating the Borough’s centennial in 1988
  • Several annual celebrity film festivals at the Regent Square Theater
  • The message board sign in front of the Borough building
  • The historical display center at the C.C. Mellor Memorial Library
  • A Boy Scout project to identify tree varieties growing within our borders
  • A chess program at the Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf


 
Recent projects which are continued today include:

  • Financial support for the Edgewood Symphony Orchestra
  • Financial support for the Edgewood Volunteer Fire Department
  • The Progressive Dinner
  • Newcomers' Reception
  • The High School Senior Celebration Brunch
  • A Wine & Chocolate Affair
  • Edgewood Oktoberfest
  • And many more!
