Leadership Pittsburgh Inc. is an
independent nonprofit organization dedicated to developing a
diverse group of leaders to serve southwestern Pennsylvania. Our
mission is to strengthen regional leadership through programs,
partnerships and connections.
Much like a university, tuition for LP/LDI participants covers less than 50% of the cost of delivery! The remainder has to be raised through individual donations and some institutional support. By investing in LPInc., you will be investing in leaders as assets and helping us to achieve our mission to inform, engage, retain, and connect established and emerging leaders across all sectors of our community. Please have your donation matched by The Pittsburgh Foundation on the 2010 Day of Giving.
Here are the details:
Beginning at 12am on Wednesday, October 13th for the ensuing twenty-four hours, every donation ($25 minimum) made to LPInc. will be matched proportionally by The Pittsburgh Foundation from a pool of $500,000 in matching dollars. Per Day of Giving rules, only credit card donations will be accepted and matched.
If you cannot give during the 24 hour match period because your schedule is full that day, please consider donating to LPInc. directly, either through our website or by mailing a donation.
How to donate on October 13th:
