The McNulty Foundation and Aspen Institute have named The Hear Foundation one of five emerging organizations to receive the 2023 McNulty Prize Catalyst Fund, an award presented to early-stage organizations that have demonstrated significant momentum with innovative models of change. The Hear Foundation will receive $20,000 in unrestricted funding to expand our work building safer communities by strengthening relationships between Pittsburgh police and the residents they serve.
We are truly grateful for the support and honored to be among a group of recipients working to solve critical issues. They include Swasth Alliance, India; theOtherForest, Lebanon; Reconstruction US, United States; and Aequitas Health, United States.
Our Co-founder, Leon Ford, will join other recipients in a rapid-fire, virtual conversation on Tuesday, March 28, 2023, at 11 a.m. ET exploring what it takes to create change in their communities.
“Each of these leaders has unique insights, whether from public service, business, medicine or architecture, which have led them to create and champion innovative solutions that get at the heart of these difficult issues. The Catalyst Fund aims to shine a light on both their leadership and their model of change, so that others can learn from their example,” said Anne Welsh McNulty, President of the McNulty Foundation and Trustee of the Aspen Institute.
