Support Pittsburgh Nonprofits by #GivingTogether

Trying Together is excited to announce our participation in this year’s Give Big Pittsburgh event!

What is Give Big Pittsburgh?

Give Big Pittsburgh is an annual day-of-giving hosted by the Pittsburgh Magazine. With this year’s event happening on December 3, Give Big Pittsburgh is a great opportunity for stakeholders and community members to collaboratively raise funds for and learn more about nonprofits working in the Pittsburgh area. Fundraising on the website will remain open until December 31 at 11:59 p.m.

Why Should You Participate?

Because Give Big Pittsburgh uses an online platform, the donation process for #GivingTuesday is quick and simple. Simply add nonprofits and individual donation values to your “Gift Basket” to complete all of your donations in one go. Donors can access their donation receipts online, making it easy to track and report your tax-deductible donations.

Visit the website to get acquainted with the platform and add nonprofits to your basket.

How You Can Participate:

While Give Big Pittsburgh places a focus on raising funds for nonprofits, there are multiple ways to give this #Giving Tuesday:

Donating to Nonprofits

One of the primary ways to participate in #GivingTuesday is to do just that, give. Outside of a small platform fee, all of the money that is donated will go directly to the nonprofit.

Sharing Your Story

Trying Together believes that every person has a place in #GivingTuesday, and with that, we want to ensure that we’re fostering community and relationships during the experience. Because we are an early childhood nonprofit, Trying Together encourages community members to #GiveThanks to an early childhood educator or professional who impacted your life in a positive way. Use #GiveThanks or #GivingTogether on social media to share your story with others as well.

Everyone has a place in #GivingTuesday, and with that, it's important to foster community and relationships during the experience. Sharing kindness, a story, a financial donation. There are plenty of ways to give. #GiveBigPittsburgh #GivingTogetherClick To Tweet

Sharing Nonprofit Donation Pages

On the Give Big Pittsburgh website, there is an arrow button to share a fundraising page link with your network. Another way to give would simply be sharing this opportunity with others. We encourage individuals to interact with us and our pages, whether that’s through sharing our posts or contributing yourself!

Learning More

Although not every Pittsburgh nonprofit will be present, Give Big Pittsburgh is a great opportunity to learn more about local nonprofits and their work in Pittsburgh communities. Visit the website to start exploring.
