Announcing The Nellie King Foundation
The family of Nellie King is very proud to announce our partnership with The Pittsburgh Foundation in creating The Nellie King Fund to support non-profit charities in our father's honor and continue his legacy of serving those less fortunate in our community.
Once the endowment reaches the $25,000 threshold, we will transition the Fund to our ultimate goal of creating a Scholarship Fund to aid and support underprivileged children, student-athletes, and sports journalism majors, amongst other charitable efforts.
Our mission is to create a lasting legacy in Nellie King's honor.
We appreciate your kindness, friendship and support, and invite you to help us honor Nellie's life and legacy by giving generously.
