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:

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.

You can give here.
