WHEREAS, since its inception, PACE has provided over $11 million in grants plus technical assistance to over 300 nonprofit organizations, and the programs of PACE provide organizational capacity that enhances and increases participation in partnerships and strategic alliances that would help make Pittsburgh livable for all of its citizens; and,

 

WHEREAS, at its core, PACE believes in the importance of increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of people and community organizations, and the programs of PACE focus on funding and capacity building, community resource development, education, and advocacy; and,

 

WHEREAS, PACE will once again “set the table” for the 11th annual Inclusive Voices Luncheon, an event that as the first of its kind in the region, has encouraged diverse, engaged and interested participants from different walks of life to share a meal, share ideas and conversation; and,
