We are committed to giving all campers the opportunity to rock with us regardless of their families’ ability to pay. Your donations are critical these efforts!
In 2017, 64% of our camp families utilized our sliding scale tuition. To date, 62% of our 2017 income came from donations.
In 6+ years, we have never had to turn anyone away based on their family’s ability to pay.
As an entirely volunteer-run non-profit organization, all donations go directly towards our general program operating expenses and cannot be earmarked for a specific project, use, or camper.
As such, we do not offer camp “scholarships”,
just honor-based sliding scale tuition!
Girls Rock! Pittsburgh is recognized by the IRS as a Section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization, and your contribution is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. We provide donation receipts for all donations over $250 and can provide receipts for smaller donations by request. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions!
We welcome and greatly appreciate donations of any amount! Please include your name and mailing address in the notes section. Want to send a check or money order? E-mail us for a mailing address!
You can also donate via our PayPal Giving Fund:
THROW A FUNDRAISER
Want to throw a benefit show or host a fundraiser for us? Great!
We ask that you give us as much notice as possible so that we can advertise the event through our networks and get you any materials (flyers, pins, brochures, banner, etc) that you may need. We prefer that any raised funds are sent directly via PayPal to email@example.com, but we can also provide a mailing address for a check or money order.
DONATE YOUR TIME/SKILLS
You can learn about volunteering at camp with us here. Not able to volunteer at camp but want to help out in other ways? We’re in the market for individuals with instrument repair abilities, or grant writing/accounting experience. We're also open to any ideas or suggestions - every little bit helps!
Does your business have something to donate? We’re always looking for local restaurants to donate lunch or coffee/bagels for our volunteers during camp week and for local businesses to donate items for our showcase raffle. We also would love printing (tshirts, tote bags, etc) and copying (name tags, flyers, programs, brochures, etc) sponsors!
Donating musical gear is an awesome way to support Girls Rock! Pittsburgh! We accept electric guitars, electric basses, complete drum kits, and keyboards.
Note: We do not accept pianos or organs. We are also currently unable to accept acoustic guitars. Donated gear must be in working condition.
