A message to our patrons regarding COVID-19

Trust the Power of Membership

We need your support now more than ever.

We know that the curtain will rise again in the Cultural District. From the stages to our streets, your gift - and membership - will ensure that the arts remain vibrant and accessible for years to come.

Your donation to the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust will help create and sustain virtual arts and education programming at this time, keeping our communities inspired, entertained, and connected. You will also help to ensure a strong re-opening of our theaters, galleries, and other venues once it is safe to do so.
