Dear Friends,

Thank you again to everyone who donated to Amizade on the first Day of Giving in May. As always, we are very grateful your generous support and continued commitment.

As many of you may know, due to technical challenges with the PittsburghGives donation system in May, the first Day of Giving was unable to be completed. While many donations did come through, many other donors were unable to contribute. However, The Pittsburgh Foundation has scheduled a second Day of Giving, now with a new donation system designed by a solid tech company with 15 years of experience managing giving day events.

On September 21, we invite you again to support Amizade on the Second of Day of Giving.

In addition to the prizes and incentives offered by The Pittsburgh Foundation throughout the day, Amizade’s own Board of Directors has generously provided a match pool of $3,000. This means that, for every dollar you give to Amizade on September 21st, up to $3,000, your donation will be matched by our Board, doubling the impact of your gift. Join us on September 21st and help Amizade increase access to global experiences and learning opportunities for youth, such as this one, that empower youth to take action for good in their home communities.

Here are some ways you can help Amizade on the Second Day of Giving:

1. From Sept. 14-21, pre-schedule a donation to Amizade through our profile page on Pittsburgh Gives.
Donations will be only processed in the morning of September 21, but it’ll count toward match pool and prizes.

Donations must be at least $25, but if your family is feeling generous and wants to contribute more, split up your donation into multiple $25 donations for maximum impact! Organizations with the most donors can win up to $5,000!

3. Represent your city!
Organizations with donors from the most ZIP codes across the country will receive an additional $5,000! We know our Amizade friends, alumni, and supporters are from all over: let’s show Pittsburgh how far the Amizade family is spread!

4. On Sept. 21, tweet using the tag @AmizadeGSL and #16DOG2.
