Day of Giving 2014 – Tuesday, May 6, 2014:
The Day of Giving 2014 will run from 6:00 a.m. until 12:00 a.m. (Midnight.) This is a 18-hour event. This event will take the place of the day traditionally held in October.
Public 501c3 nonprofit organizations that primarily serve Allegheny or Westmoreland Counties, and that have a current profile on the site as of April 7, 2014 are eligible to participate. That deadline has passed, and the Foundation is not accepting applications for new profiles until May 31, 2014.
Organizations will receive a pro-rated portrait of the match pool. The match will be capped at $1,000 per donor transaction per organization. Any gift of $25 to $1,000 per donor per organization will count towards the match pool. If a donor gives a gift that exceeds $1,000 to an organization (for example $1,500) only the first $1,000 will count towards the match calculation. This is not a $1-to-$1 match.
All gifts are designated to operating support only. The minimum gift per organization is $25. Donations may not be used to fulfill dues, pledges, or for named or capital projects.
Donations will not be accepted by third parties. The donor must make the online contribution and he/she will be receipted directly for that donation.
This year’s match pool of $50,000 has been generously contributed by the following supporters:
Sean Cassidy & Gina Sciarrino
Ferrier Family Fund of The Community Foundation of Westmoreland County
Richard King Mellon Foundation
Old Joe Charities, Inc.
Mr. & Mrs. Tony Pauly
