The Pittsburgh Foundation will host the seventh Day of Giving for Allegheny County on May 3, 2016.  From 8 a.m. to midnight, the public will be able to support participating nonprofits through contributions.  This year's event has a new model - nonprofits will be able to raise their own match pools and each gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar by those individual match pools until each organization's pool is depleted.  Butler and Westmoreland Counties are offering separate match pools, which will be announced closed to the date.

In order to register for the event, nonprofits, either with existing profiles or new to the program, must contact Christopher Pope at or 412-391-5122 x269  All profiles, match pool information and registration must be completed by April 3, 2016.

December 8, 2015 - Critical Needs Alert: Homelessness

Just after noon on December 8 – four hours into the campaign – the Foundation exhausted the $500,000 match pool, raising more than $1 million for the 40 participating nonprofits that provide such essential services to our community as emergency shelter, temporary housing and employment assistance to homeless children, youth, adults and families. The match pool was created from a combination of the Foundation’s funds and contributions from its donor community, and it is the largest in the campaign’s history. Among the donor funds and foundations who contributed to this year’s alert are: the Linda Christen Family Charitable Fund, the Ellen B. Amshel Fund, Anonymous (5) and the Rita M. McGinley Foundation. 

This year's leading organizations in terms of funds received are Light of Life Rescue Mission, North Hills Affordable Housing Task Force, Inc. (HEARTH), and the Women's Center and Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh.  The full leader board can be seen here.
