Your generosity brings the arts to life.

As a patron of the arts, you appreciate the many ways art and culture enrich all our lives. We invite you to join others who share your love of the arts and who champion the preservation of Pittsburgh's downtown Cultural District through membership in the Circles – our most distinguished group of contributors.

The Circles program of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust was established to recognize the generosity of a special group of individuals who have helped strengthen the foundation of Pittsburgh’s world-renowned Cultural District with their annual contributions of $1,000 and above.

From the stages to the galleries to the public art in the streets, your membership gift will ensure that the arts remain innovative, vibrant, and accessible to all for years to come. Your donation also helps create and sustain educational programming that inspires the next generation of arts patrons.

Explore the benefits of Circles membership and make your gift today.
