LGBTQIA+ Holiday Giving Guide

2020 has been rough on all of us. We ask that you give what you can in money, time, and energy to support the Greater Pittsburgh LGBTQIA+ community and all that we do together to support each other.

Giving to the PGH Equality Center

When you give to the PGH Equality Center, you support the Teen Book Club, Pride initiatives, Town Halls, and more. Our goal is to raise $5,000 by the end of December.

Give Big Pittsburgh runs through December 31, 2020; GiveLively; Text “PGHLGBTQIA” to 44-321; PayPal; AmazonSmile; SquareStore

Gay4Good Bradley Center Toy Drive

This holiday we will be partnering with The Bradley Center for a holiday gift drive to benefit the adolescents who are currently living at their residential facility. The Bradley Center is an educational and residential center that works with children and their families to address trauma, mental illness, and behavioral challenges.

We have been given 25 gift tags, organized loosely by cost:

8 Red Tags ( <$20)
13 Green Tags ($20-$50)
4 Silver Tags ($50-100)

To participate, please register at the link below or you can send us a PM. You will be sent information about the adolescents and can select your gift tag on a first come, first served basis. You can also recruit some of your friends to share the cost of a gift tag with you. And to get you further into the holiday spirit, you’ll receive a holiday treat when you drop off the gift!

Thank you for helping us spread some holiday kindness in the last month of a year that has been a struggle for so many.
