The Heinz Endowments is a foundation based in Pittsburgh that develops solutions
to regional, statewide, and national challenges. The organization’s goals are to
help southwestern Pennsylvania thrive economically, ecologically, educationally,
and culturally—while advancing the state of knowledge and practice in fields
such as philanthropy in general, and disciplines in five grant-making programs:
Arts & Culture; Children, Youth & Families; Education; Environment; and
Community & Economic Development.

The Heinz Endowments faces particular challenges when it comes to protecting
its network. This is due to the foundation’s need to be open in its external posture
and public interactions. “We need grantees and the public to have access to our
executives and staff, so we do some things that aren’t best practice, like putting
everyone’s email address on our website,” says Charlie Richardson, Director of
Information Technology, The Heinz Endowments.
