Lend a Helping Hand With Give Big Pittsburgh
Find out how much was raised during Tuesday's launch and let’s keep the momentum going.
In the first 24 hours of the Give Big Pittsburgh COVID-19 Response, approximately 11,000 people contributed to raise more than $1 million for nonprofit organizations in the Pittsburgh region.
Talk about giving big, Pittsburgh.
The initiative is inspired by Giving Tuesday and #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of giving and unity on May 5, designed to drive an influx of generosity, citizen engagement, business and philanthropy activation, and support for communities and nonprofits.
“We’ve always believed that Pittsburgh is one of the most generous cities in the country,” says Pittsburgh Magazine Publisher Betsy Benson. “During these unprecedented and difficult times, we believe our community will again step up to the funding challenges our charitable institutions face.”
As with Give Big Pittsburgh, each nonprofit creates its own individual page on a crowdsourcing website, which is provided free-of-charge through a partnership of Pittsburgh Magazine and GiveGab, a nonprofit giving platform. Donors make gifts to the nonprofits of their choice, and those funds go directly to the nonprofits. The giving platform provides updates in real-time, so nonprofits and their supporters can track their progress.
The campaign concludes at midnight on May 31. For more information, visit the Give Big Pittsburgh COVID-19 Response page.
