A Month of Thanks and Giving

PERSAD CENTER announces matching gift program 

Donations made to PERSAD CENTER during the month of November will be matched by our Board of Directors

Your donation this month will go even further to help LGBTQ people and those living with HIV in our region.

Many of our loyal donors, over the past several years, have chosen to take advantage of the Pittsburgh Foundation's Fall Day of Giving. This has been a wonderful way to support PERSAD CENTER in the past, but this year’s fall campaign was focused on arts organizations only and we believe is planned to be the last such event.

In order to keep the spirit of generosity alive during this season of thanks, PERSAD’S Board of Directors has joined together to create a new matching gift pool. All donations made during November to our Annual Campaign will be matched with 50 cents on every dollar given!

PERSAD CENTER’S Annual Campaign makes it possible for individuals who need our unique services to access them regardless of their ability to pay. Often, the people who need our services most, are the least able to afford them — disenfranchised youth, isolated seniors, individuals with HIV or AIDS, transgender people experiencing discrimination — that is why your support is so critical!

You can make your donation today by clicking HERE and visiting the donation page on our secure website. You can also mail your donation, made payable to PERSAD CENTER, to 5150 Penn Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15224.

Give during the month of November and make a greater impact with your gift!
