Get Connected. Stay Involved.

Discover new ways to enjoy The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust through exclusive privileges reserved for Circles members.

As a patron of the arts, you already belong to an exceptional group of people. We invite you to join others who share your love of the arts and continued development of Pittsburgh's downtown Cultural District through membership in the Circles—our most distinguished group of contributors.

The Circles program at The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust was established to recognize the generosity of a special group of individuals who have helped to strengthen the foundation of Pittsburgh's world-renowned Cultural District with their annual contributions of $1,000 and above. Our distinguished Circles donors have played a leading role in supporting our internationally recognized theaters, bold urban parks and public spaces, as well as critical educational programs and acclaimed performance series and art exhibitions. These individuals have helped make the vision of a vibrant urban cultural district a reality for millions of Pittsburghers each year.

Your gift to the Circles Membership Program not only helps support the important work of The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, but provides you with special benefits.
