PRSA Pittsburgh Public Service

PRSA Pittsburgh recognizes the communications, marketing and fundraising pressures facing small nonprofit organizations, which have only been heightened in recent years. Each year, PRSA Pittsburgh accepts proposals from southwestern Pennsylvania notprofit organizations that are in need of pro-bono public relations, marketing and communications assistance.

The scope of services that the PRSA Pittsburgh Public Service Committee can assist with includes, but is not limited to the following (will be based on needs identified in proposal):

  • Planning and executing a communications strategy or tactic and/or providing training to your staff or board.

  • Designating the nonprofit as a PRSA Pittsburgh event beneficiary (i.e., a portion of PRSA event sales will go to the organization) and/or the opportunity to engage at a PRSA event or the organization’s event.

  • Planning and executing a communications campaign (i.e., to support a new fundraising initiative, new event or program, promote a new initiative)

2023 Public Service Partnership – Construction Junction

In July, PRSA Pittsburgh announced that it will be partnering with Construction Junction, a creative reuse nonprofit located in Pittsburgh’s North Point Breeze neighborhood. 

Through this partnership, which extends through the end of 2023, PRSA Pittsburgh members will work with Construction Junction to develop a communications plan to promote its 25-year history in our region, culminating in an anniversary event in November 2024. The communication efforts will focus on creating awareness across the local community to help Construction Junction attract donors and visitors.
