DONATIONS AND APPEARANCES

Thank you for your interest in the Pittsburgh Pirates.

We are proud to be an integral part of our community, supporting the efforts of various non-profit organizations and the outstanding work they do.

The Pirates are asked to support thousands of worthwhile charitable causes and events each year and we make every effort to accommodate as many requests as possible.

IN-KIND DONATION PROGRAM

If you are seeking an in-kind donation for an upcoming event, please carefully read the information below.

In order to preserve paper and maximize efficiency, all donation requests must be submitted using our online donation request system.

Before submitting your in-kind donation request, please ensure that your request fits within our guidelines:

  • Requests must be submitted and received at least four (4) weeks before an event.
  • The Pirates can only donate to charitable organizations in the Greater Pittsburgh Community and the tri-state region of Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia.
  • Due to the volume of requests, the Pirates must limit organizations to one donation per calendar year.
  • Donations are for fundraising and charitable purposes only. We cannot provide sales incentives, corporate gifts or donations to for-profit entities.
  • The Pirates are unable to accept items to be autographed.

If we are able to fulfill your request, complimentary tickets to a Pirates home game will be mailed a minimum of one (1) week in advance of your event.

We wish you the best of luck with your charitable and fundraising efforts!
