The Pittsburgh Contingency was formed in June 2012 with our IRS 501©3 designation granted in July 2014 to assist new or existing charitable or grass root organizations in need of assistance with back office duties such as bookkeeping, contract administration or general business oversight while enhancing their programmatic focus including but not limited to charitable, scientific, literary or educational purposes.
TPC believes in educating those organizations in the correct professional procedures required in handling their finances, reporting requirements and general business knowledge so that they continue as a viable entity and can continue to serve the people in their communities that are in need of their services. TPC currently acts as a Fiscal Sponsor to The Ephesus Project, The Isaiah Project and Women Against Abusive Relationships. TPC is educating and assisting with fiscal and business management of the Acculturation for Justice, Access and Peace Outreach and Women Empowered for Entrepreneurial Excellence. In 2015 TPC has received numerous private and business contributions and foundation support for our various programs.
TPC introduces EDUtech, a significant initiative designed to bring technical education concepts to students in the region that will directly have influence and impact on future career options and choices. TPC has decided to expand their focus to direct programmatic services in communities where youth and young adults do not view education as a necessity for life’s success or growth. By providing individuals with the resources needed to assist them with making more informed career choices, and also introducing them to technical skills now in demand in the region, EDUtech is designed to provide foundation skills and knowledge of traditional and non-traditional career choices through their partnerships with tech firms who have a significant presence in the Pittsburgh and surrounding areas.
