Get Involved{ Volunteer }

We could not fulfill our mission of achieving equality for women and girls in southwest Pennsylvania without the dedication and support of our volunteers. Throughout the year, we have a variety of opportunities for individuals and groups to get involved with WGF through volunteering.

[1] Become an Event Supporter
Each year we host a fundraising gala that publicly recognizes individuals in our community who are doing amazing work. In past years, we have honored Women Greening Pittsburgh, Women in Media, Women in Sports, and others. We always need help with these events, either prepping materials or helping greet guests.

[2] Be an Advocate
Our advocacy efforts work to ensure long-term equity for women and girls through advancing (or fighting against) legislation at the state and local levels. To this end, we send out Action Alerts at least monthly as issues arise in which we can mobilize people to help influence outcomes of public policy and resource allocation decisions. We would love your help in mobilizing your network of friends and colleagues to write letters to people who hold power over these decisions to let them know how their action affects the lives of women and girls.

[3] Become an Ambassador
We have just launched our first “crowd sourcing” campaign, designed to encourage individuals to tailor a fundraising effort to support Women and Girls Foundation that best meets their interests–and that they will feel especially good at inviting their friends to participate in. We would love it if you might be willing to persuade your friends to join you in supporting a specific aspect of our work, or to give in honor of something or someone that is special to you.

If any of these ways of volunteering for the Women and Girls Foundation sound interesting to you, please contact us at or via phone at 412-434-4883.
