PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Pittsburghers can donate to hundreds of local non-profits in one place today.
Give Big Pittsburgh by Pittsburgh Magazine is an online platform used to raise money for non-profits.
Over 400 non-profits registered. Pittsburgh Magazine Publisher Betsy Benson tells KDKA Radio’s Larry Richert, the event is in honor of Giving Tuesday.
“We just got through Cyber Monday, we had Black Friday,” said Benson. “This is the day for giving.”
Benson adds any money goes directly to the organizations.
“So when you make a gift to an organization it goes immediately to that nonprofit’s bank account and it safe and secure way.”
