Support GlobalPittsburgh on Match Day TODAY - Pittsburgh Foundation Will Match Donations 50 Cents on the Dollar - PRE-REGISTER NOW!

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for Wednesday, Oct. 28 to visit www.PittsburghGives.org – a Day of Giving organized by the Pittsburgh Foundation where any gift $50 - $2,500 will be matched 50 cents to the dollar!

Please consider making a gift to GlobalPittsburgh (formerly Pittsburgh Council for International Visitors) and secure that match! Please also forward this to your family and friends to encourage their participation. Through the Day of Giving, the Pittsburgh Foundation has dedicated $300,000 to this project. This is a fantastic opportunity for GlobalPittsburgh/PCIV to raise some much needed funds! Please be aware that this match will end when those funds run out, and it could happen in the first half-hour! That's why it's so important to register ahead of time, and to act quickly on the 28th.

How to Participate:
Make sure to register BEFORE Oct. 28th to allow your giving process to be as easy as possible. The $300,000 available in matching funds is expected to go VERY quickly.
1. Go to http://www.PittsburghGives.org.
2. Click "Login" on top right-hand side of page.
3. Click "Create Login." Fill in information and click "Register."
4. Fill in the appropriate information and then write down your username and password so you can easily find it on Oct 28th.
5. Set a reminder for yourself for October 28th at 10 a.m.

On October 28 at 10 a.m. SHARP (and not before):
1. Use your username and password to login to PittsburghGives.org.
2. Type in "Pittsburgh Council for International Visitors" where it says "Organization Name."
3. Click "Donate Now" and follow the instructions to complete your secure online donation. Contributions of $50 or more will be matched 50 cents for every dollar. If the match funds are exhausted, you will be notified and asked if you wish to proceed. Yes, you can still say YES!
4. You will receive a confirmation email that will serve as your tax receipt.
5. Every $50 you donate will entitle you to a ticket to GlobalPittsburgh's 50th Anniversary Celebration on Dec. 21, 2009 at LeMont Restaurant on Mt. Washington. More details about that later.
Thanks!
