A message to our patrons regarding COVID-19

Circles Membership

During this time, we need your support now more than ever.

As a patron of the arts, you already belong to an exceptional group of people. We invite you to join others who share your love of the arts and the preservation of Pittsburgh's downtown Cultural District through membership in the Circles—our most distinguished group of contributors.

The Circles program of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust was established to recognize the generosity of a special group of individuals who have helped to strengthen the foundation of Pittsburgh's world-renowned Cultural District with their annual contributions of $1,000 and above.

Your support is critical. We know that the curtain will rise again in the Cultural District. From the stages to our streets, your gift - and membership - will ensure that the arts remain vibrant and accessible for years to come.

Your donation will help create and sustain virtual arts and education programming at this time, keeping our communities inspired, entertained, and connected. You will also help to ensure a strong re-opening of our theaters, galleries, and other venues once it is safe to do so.
