Through the Giorgi Family Foundation, the Metropolis Center received a transformational gift – a gift of significance and lasting impact. The Giorgi family of Reading, PA, has committed $6 million over five years – the single largest donation ever offered by the foundation.
“We know this transformational gift from the Giorgi Family Foundation will have a meaningful impact on the people and parishes of the Metropolis of Pittsburgh for generations to come,” said Peter F. Giorgi, President of The Giorgi Family Foundation. “The ministries of the Metropolis and its parishes profoundly affect the lives of all those served by the Church, and we are pleased to partner with the Metropolis to build its capacity to stand as an even greater presence in our communities.“
Established in 2016 to honor family patriarch Fredrick Giorgi, the foundation regularly awards grants to arts organizations, animal welfare groups, innovative research and more. Peter F. Giorgi is director of the foundation as well as President and CEO of Giorgi Global Holdings, Inc., a U.S. based international business in the agricultural, food processing and packaging sectors.
