Day of Giving is May 3.

The Community Foundation of Westmoreland County along with their affiliate The Pittsburgh Foundation will again be sponsoring the Day of Giving. This year’s date is Tuesday, May 3, 2016 and runs in conjunction with the national Give Local America event, which is designed to empower people to give back to their local communities. Donations can be made between 8am and midnight through the donation portal.

Please include The Westmoreland in your Day of Giving plans! Your gift will receive a partial match through the Community Foundation.
