ArtDOG  (Arts Day of Giving) will take place on October 2, 2014 from 6:00 a.m. until 12:00 a.m.  All participating arts organizations that receive contributions through during that time will receive a pro-rated share of the stretch pool.  A list of eligible organizations will be available to view on September 26th after the deadline to complete participation requirements has passed.

If you would like to donate during ArtDOG, please visit  on October 2, 2014.  This is an 18 hour event beginning at 6:00 a.m.   You may donate by credit card only, the minimum donation is $15 per organization, and donations up to $1,000 per donor per organization will count towards the stretch pool (this means if you choose to donate, for example, $1,200 to an organization, only the first $1,000 will count towards the stretch pool.)

If your arts organization would like to participate, it must be a member in good standing of the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council and have a current profile on the PittsburghGives site by September 25, 2014.   If your organization has not already received a link to update its profile or if your organization is new to the program, please contact us to get started.
