Giving Tuesday: Let’s Get Families Digitally Connected!
Access to technology isn’t a nice to have, it’s a necessity.
It’s time to face it: basic life, education, and workplace requirements are moving online. To ensure that every person and family has the digital tools and skills they need to live, learn, and connect, we MUST close the digital divide.
Join Us in Closing the Digital Divide
This November, help Computer Reach get computers directly into the hands of individuals and families in need by joining us for Give Big Pittsburgh. Scheduled for November 29, 2022, Give Big Pittsburgh is an annual online giving day (tied with GivingTuesday) where community members join together to raise money for local nonprofits. The event offers:
- a one-stop website that makes donating to local nonprofits quick and easy,
- a convenient way to store tax-deductible donation receipts for all of your year-end giving,
- the ability to start your own fundraising campaigns for nonprofits you support,
- and so much more.
Take time to celebrate the giving spirit and make a difference in your local communities this holiday season by donating to causes that matter to you. The platform will open on November 29 at 12:00 a.m. and will remain open until 11:59 p.m. on December 31, 2022.
