SWSG is proud to be in a community of generous citizens!
Each year, the Pittsburgh Foundation holds a Day of Giving to raise awareness of and support for the dozens of nonprofits working for social change in Greater Pittsburgh. The Day of Giving is facilitated by PittsburghGives, an initiative of the Pittsburgh Foundation that has three key objectives:
“(1) Increase the level of knowledge of nonprofits in our region; (2) Leverage or increase individual funding for organizations or an issue in our community; (3) Spotlight the charitable trends in our region.  Where are people giving?  What are your community’s nonprofits saying is vital and needed right now?”
On the Day of Giving, the Pittsburgh Foundation matches donations given to organizations that have a PittsburghGives profile. The Day of Giving ran from 12:00AM-11:59PM yesterday, October 3rd. This year, the Day of Giving raised $7,046,383 from donors, plus a $750,000 match from the Pittsburgh Foundation! This is an astounding total of $7,596,383 to support Pittsburgh-area nonprofits. Thank you, Pittsburgh, for giving!
