Western Pennsylvania nonprofits collected more than $5.7 million from Day of Giving on Tuesday, down about $2 million from last year.

“We believe it's due partly to moving the event from its customary date in October when it has served as kind of local launch for the charitable giving season,” said Christopher Whitlatch, a spokesman for The Pittsburgh Foundation, the sponsor.

Day of Giving allowed donors to contribute to more than 800 nonprofits in Allegheny, Westmoreland and Butler counties. The foundation provided a $750,000 match to Allegheny County charities, and a match of about $50,000 to those in Westmoreland and about $10,000 to those in Butler.

The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank topped the list of charities most popular with donors, collecting nearly $144,000.

The fundraising total was $5.3 million for Allegheny, $368,000 for Westmoreland and $83,000 for Butler, all including the matching funds.
