All or Nothing Challenge Grants Announced

April 26, 2010

Thanks to two of our members, the Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation may receive $25,000 in matching grants to get our Historic Religious Properties Program (HRPP) back up and running. The grant, however, is contingent upon

PHLF’s members and friends contributing $25,000 in new HRPP support by June 30th. That’s just 65 days away!

Given the severity of our recent winter and its impact on Allegheny County historic religious properties, we have taken the unusual step of moving our annual appeal up eight months to do everything we can to take advantage of this opportunity. We’re also adding our own match of up to $12,500 for every dollar raised in excess of $25,000.

Your generosity now will help us reach our goal of securing two challenge grants. You can make a tax-deductible targeted donation by credit card on our web site (on left hand side of this page), or by contacting Mary Lu Denny (412-471-5808, ext. 527). Or, mail a check payable to “PHLF” and referenced “HRP” to Mary Lu Denny, PHLF, 100 West Station Square Drive, Suite 450, Pittsburgh, PA 15219.

Thank you for helping us restore our Historic Religious Properties Program by June 30, 2010.

Since 1997, members and friends have joined with PHLF to provide about $700,000 for more than 100 historic religious buildings whose congregations then matched our grants, bringing total support to nearly $1.4 million. Never will your gift to PHLF mean as much, since every dollar you give now can generate three more.

Remember, it’s all…or nothing when it comes to these challenge grants! Help us earn them both so historic religious properties and the neighborhoods they serve can benefit.

A copy of the official registration and financial information of the Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation may be obtained from the Pennsylvania Department of State by calling toll free, within Pennsylvania, 1-800-732-0999. Registration does not imply endorsement.
