Pittsburgh Foundation Matches Donations


Through the generosity of The Pittsburgh Foundation, you have a one-time opportunity to significantly leverage your donations to nonprofits that are featured on a new online giving Web site: PittsburghGives.org.

Please consider making an online donation to Sustainable Pittsburgh through this Web site on Wednesday, October 28, at 10 a.m. sharp. Your donation will be matched 50 cents on the dollar by The Pittsburgh Foundation up to a maximum of $2,500!

Sustainable Pittsburgh will designate your donation and the match funds you leverage toward conducting a sustainability assessment of the Borough of Wilkinsburg.

A sustainability assessment is a niche service we offer to municipalities and businesses to assess and recommend practical means to save money, conserve resources, and integrate sustainability into management systems for the long haul.

Wilkinsburg is on the cusp of a transformation. Through collaboration with the state, county, local businesses and nonprofits, the community is laying the foundation for future prosperity where sustainability is the framework for maximizing social, economic, and environmental wins. The sustainability assessment is  timed to complement the borough’s comprehensive plan, which will be completed soon.

In anticipation of making your on-line donation promptly at 10 am on October 28, there is a pre-step that will speed your access. Well in advance, please pre-register as a user on the Pittsburgh Gives Web site. This will set you up with a password that will speed your log-in.
