Critical Alert: 

Join The Pittsburgh Foundation in its 

Campaign Against Homelessness

Beginning December 8, The Pittsburgh Foundation will launch its second Critical Needs Homelessness Alert, a public giving campaign aimed at eliminating housing insecurity in our region. Building on the runaway success of 2014's campaign, in which the public--matched dollar-for-dollar by The Pittsburgh Foundation-raised $900,000 in 24 hours, the Foundation's donation portal will once again open at 8 a.m. Any gift of at least $25 to one or more of the participating nonprofits will be matched dollar-for-dollar (match is capped at $10,000 per donor per organization) from the Foundation's $200,000 match pool. Funds will support local nonprofits that provide the area's homeless population with a variety of services, from emergency shelters to temporary housing and employment assistance.

This holiday season, give the gift of stability and shelter to our neighbors most in need. Visit beginning Dec. 8 to make a donation, or contact your donor services representative about making a gift from your fund at the Foundation.
