Giving Tuesday

Celebrate the giving spirit and support the work of Casa San Jose by participating in this year’s Give Big Pittsburgh!

What is #GiveBigPittsburgh?

Tied with #GivingTuesday, a nationally recognized annual day of giving, Give Big Pittsburgh is a local platform that works to raise awareness, collect donations, and build stronger ties between members of our community. To participate in this #DayofGiving, community members are invited to explore and collaborate in raising funds in support of immigrant justice.

Four ways to help

  1. Become a fundraising champion

    Give Big Pittsburgh has a simple tool that makes it easy for you to host your own online fundraiser. #GivingTuesday is a great time to use this resource to raise awareness about immigrant justice, share your own personal story and meet your fundraising goals. Every single dollar raised goes directly to Latinx families, their integration to the Greater Pittsburgh area and their self-sufficiency.

    Not sure how high to set your fundraising goal? Consider this:

    – $25 can help buy arts and crafts supplies for one month for our virtual youth programs.
    – $60 can help to cover two registration fees for Campamento Sonrisa, our summer camp.
    – $100 can help buy food and nutritional meal planning for a family of 5 during one month.
    – $250 can help pay five mental health counseling sessions so those in need can thrive.
    – $500 can help pay for one DACA renewal application to secure a Dreamer’s future.
    – $1,000 can help families struggling to recover from COVID-19 loss of income.
