How Does Your Day of Giving Donation Impact Assemble?


The Pittsburgh Foundation’s seventh annual Day of Giving is less than a week away. This is an exceptional opportunity to give back to your local community—the money you donate to Assemble supports our educational programming and creative events. Accessibility is a central part of Assemble’s mission. All of our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) afterschool and Saturday programs are FREE to the students that participate. That means anyone who can get to our space in Garfield can participate in creative, hands-on, learning-based activities led by our experienced maker teachers.

“Everyone deserves the opportunity to wonder and dream about how they will change the world,” says Assemble’s Director Nina Barbuto. “They also deserve the opportunity to learn how to do it.”


Through your support we can continue to build confidence through making, giving kids 21st century skills to shape their futures. At any level, your donation can do a lot of work for our organization:

$25  Provides reliable FREE snacks at Assemble for kids at Unblurred.

$50 provides materials and free snacks for a FREE Assemble Afterschool.

$100 provides one Saturday Crafternoon with snacks, supplies, and a stipend for our guest artists/makers/technologists.

$150 makes M3 (materials,media, and me) happen with supplies, snacks and help for our Experts’ time.

$200 would pay for a scholarship for a kid in Garfield to attend our Summer Camps like Mysteries of the Universe!Top Secret: Maker Mission!, and Mixtape Camp!

$300 covers the cost for us to be at a community event, doing make-n-takes like LED Pins and more

$500 would cover the amount of time, materials, snacks, and effort that goes towards creating and hosting one Learning Party

So, we hope you think of Assemble during this year’s Day of Giving. We appreciate all of the support we get from awesome people like you–no matter the amount–because we make every bit count!
