Rather than waiting until the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (GivingTuesday) to launch the fourth annual Give Big Pittsburgh campaign, Pittsburgh Magazine is jumping in now with the COVID-19 Response Campaign, an effort to assist in raising critical dollars — in the safest way possible — for nonprofits in Western Pennsylvania during this time of exceptional need.
This citywide fund-raising effort will support non-profits that are providing essential services to those affected by the disease AND organizations whose operations have been disrupted by the economic shutdown deployed to fight the pandemic.
The COVID-19 pandemic decimated our arts community. Now is the time to come to together to support, create, and connect in more innovative and sustaining ways. In March 2020, PICT launched the new PICT Educates wing of their permanent programming. PICT Educates serves as an educational resource for our local and global community: both onsite and online. Our online lectures series through Webinar Ninja are FREE and appropriate for all ages. When we can gather again, our PICT Educates initiatives will include discounted tickets and outreach programming for students and seniors, production-specific panel discussions, and many more community engagements focusing on the craft and applications of classic theatre.
Your donation not only supports the highest quality of Irish and Classic Theatre, but is also an investment in local designers, actors, technicians, and administrative staff. From actors’ salaries to the re-tooling of our scene shop, your generous donations to PICT will make a direct impact on our local community of theatre artists. Quite simply, an investment in PICT is an investment in Pittsburgh.
Please consider pledging your support for PICT Classic Theatre this Tuesday, May 5th.
