A Critical Fund for the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust faces a critical financial situation. This health crisis has wreaked havoc on the arts and culture in our country and in our city. Since mid-March, the Trust has been forced to cancel more than 4,000 performances and events, leaving a cultural void in our community. In April, the Trust identified a $6 million shortfall in our budget for the 2020 fiscal year. We have already made progress toward closing this gap through generous contributions, including a lead gift from a Trustee as well as significant gifts from other key stakeholders. Still, there currently remains a $3 million shortfall. We are working to raise these much-needed funds by the end of this year.

You can ensure the arts will once again thrive in our Cultural District! Join us now to help close the $3 million budget shortfall.

September 1st Update: On August 13th, we kickstarted our campaign to raise the first $100,000 toward our larger goal by August 31st. Thanks to our generous supporters and Circles and Partners Advisory Board members, we surpassed our goal and raised over $125,000! We are deeply touched by the support and encouragement that we have received.

If you would still like to support the Cultural Trust, it is not too late. A significant need remains as we work to close a $3 million deficit funding gap by the end of 2020. A donation will help to ensure the Trust and our Cultural District will remain vibrant and a welcoming place for us all to enjoy together.

If you love the arts, if you have ever enjoyed a night out in the Cultural District, if you miss us like we miss you – please donate now.
