Thursday, April 24, 2014, 1:18 p.m.

The Pittsburgh Foundation's Day of Giving this year will include Butler County, foundation officials announced Thursday.

More than 700 nonprofits in Allegheny, Westmoreland and Butler counties will participate May 6, coinciding with a national event to encourage giving in more than 100 communities across the countries.

The Pittsburgh Foundation with the help of its donors is providing a match pool of about $750,000 for Allegheny County, about $50,000 for Westmoreland County and more than $10,000 for Butler County.

The foundation is limiting matching funds to the first $1,000 per donor per organization. Day of Giving raised $7.7 million last year.

To donate on May 6, visit between 6 a.m. and midnight. Use the search function to find an eligible nonprofit.
