Since March 2020, families across the United States have struggled to work and learn remotely simply because they don’t have access to a computer or broadband internet at home. That’s why our work to bridge the digital divide is more important than ever before! This GivingTuesday, will you help us get students, families, and community members digitally connected?
Give Big Pittsburgh
Tied with GivingTuesday, Give Big Pittsburgh is an annual day-of-giving where community members join together to raise money for local nonprofits. By using this online platform, you can add nonprofits to your “Gift Basket,” complete your year-end giving, and keep track of tax-deductible receipts.
This year’s event will take place on December 1, 2020. While Give Big Pittsburgh is a 24-hour online fundraising event, the donation platform will remain open until 11:59 p.m. on December 31, 2020. To learn more, visit the website.
