The Allegheny County Music Festival Fund

The Allegheny County Music Festival Fund has been utilized for a wide variety of items and opportunities including:

  • A week of “live-in” summer camp for at-risk young persons to allow them to engage in healthy activities outside their neighborhood.
  • Lessons in dance, karate and music, and other positive outlets for self-expression for a child who is living in a homeless shelter with his or her mother to escape domestic violence.
  • The opportunity for a child receiving mental health services to spend quality time with his or her family at the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium or the National Aviary.
  • The opportunity for a young man or woman, transitioning into adulthood, to attend a college tour and set the course for his or her future.          
Monetary Donations

The funds to provide life-enriching items and opportunities to children are raised through two annual fundraisers: Allegheny County Music Festival and Candidates’ Comedy Night.  As the demand for funds increases, so does the need to raise additional funds.  Please consider donating to this worthy cause.
