Donate on October 3 — and your donation will be increased with matching funds

On Thursday October 3, 2013, donations made through Pittsburgh Gives can be designated for your favorite local nonprofit — and your donation will be increased with a percentage of matching funds from the Pittsburgh Foundation.  Many local organizations, including the PHCA (hint, hint), are eligible for matching funds.

Here are the basic rules:

– Only Mastercard or Visa credit card donations received through during the 24 hours of October 3, 2013 will be matched for this event.  No donations via check, cash or stock will be accepted.  Discover and AMEX donations will not be accepted or matched.
– Each gift is 100% tax deductible.  The credit card charge will display as a donation to ”The Pittsburgh Foundation” on the donor’s credit card statement.
– The minimum gift per organization is $25.  All gifts up to $1,000 per organization will be matched.
