Day of Giving 2014

Spring 2014

This year, Ursuline Senior Services has once again been invited by the Pittsburgh Foundation to participate in the "Day of Giving," which gives donors a chance to increase their gifts by participating in a match pool.

This year Day of Giving will be held on May 6, in conjunction with the Give Local America Initiative, a nationwide celebration of philanthropy. This event will run from 6 am to 12 am (midnight.) On that day, anyone wishing to support Ursuline and its programs, including the Good Grief Center, should visit, where there will be a form available on the site where you can input information and select our organization from a drop-down list.

In October 2008, the agency Executive Director Anthony Turo and Director of Volunteer Services Karen Miller Tobin were guests of the local CTV weekly talk show "A Nickols' Worth" and its host Dr. Mitchell Nickols.
