SHUC Joins in Pittsburgh’s Day of Giving!

For the first time ever, the Squirrel Hill Urban Coalition will be taking part in the Pittsburgh Foundation’s Day of Giving.  The Day of Giving will take place Tuesday, May 3rd from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m. Donations will be accepted during this 16‐hour period through



What is the Day of Giving?

The Pittsburgh Foundation’s Day of Giving is a 16‐hour, online giving event created to increase a collective culture of philanthropy in our region. The goal is simple – inspire Western Pennsylvanians to come together, show their pride in their communities, and contribute to support the life‐changing work of local nonprofit organizations.


How does it work?

The Pittsburgh Foundation partners with Kimbia, Inc. ( to generate online profiles of participating nonprofits at , searchable by organization name, issue area and/or county. Online donations can be made to participating nonprofits starting at 8:00 a.m. on May 3rd. An online “leaderboard” will display real‐time giving tallies to keep our community up‐to‐speed on the event.

Why Give?

Public charities, schools and religious institutions play an essential role across our region – in health, arts, environment, education and social services. In today’s economic environment these organizations need to accomplish much more with much less. Gifts made during the Day of Giving will be amplified by incentive prizes for participating nonprofits.
