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. This year, PRSA Pittsburgh is accepting proposals from southwestern Pennsylvania notprofit organizations that are in need of pro-bono public relations, marketing and communications assistance during 2023.

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)


  • Proposals must be received no later than Saturday, April 8, 2023.
  • Public Service Committee will select and notify the chosen organization no later than Friday, April 28, 2023.
