Pittsburgh Foundation to Double Donations for Tree of Life
The Pittsburgh Foundation is committed to match all donations, made by the end of the day on Saturday, to eight local organizations in response to the tragedy at Tree of Life synagogue.
If you’ve wanted to donate money to support Tree of Life victims and Jewish congregations in the city but haven’t done so yet, don’t wait any longer: your efforts could be doubled if you act soon.
The Pittsburgh Foundation’s Critical Needs campaign, #LoveIsStronger, has vowed to match all donations (100 percent) — up to $150,000 — made to these eight organizations:
- The Jewish Community Center, offering crisis assistance to the Squirrel Hill community
- Jewish Family and Community Services (JFCS), which provides emotional support to those who are grieving
- Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh, helping the Victims of Terror Fund
- Tree of Life*Or L’Simcha Congregation, of Tree of Life Synagogue
- Dor Hadash Congregation, of Tree of Life Synagogue
- New Light Congregation, of Tree of Life Synagogue
- Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #1, for the Injured Officers Fund
- HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society), Pittsburgh’s Jewish resettlement agency working with refugees around the world
As of Friday morning, more than $66,000 have been raised across these eight organizations. You can join the cause, too, but don’t wait to do it — The Pittsburgh Foundation will only match the money raised by 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3.
