Doors Open Pittsburgh exists to educate and stimulate the exploration and appreciation of Pittsburgh’s architecture, history and design heritage, by providing unique behind-the-scenes, or some experiential access to significant buildings across the City’s diverse neighborhoods and business district.
Doors Open Pittsburgh was founded as a non-profit (501c3) by Bonnie Baxter – a native Pittsburgher, who was inspired by a similar event she attended while living in Chicago.
To this day, there is no staff, and no substantial sponsoring organization or foundation.
While there was some success in raising sponsorship dollars and generating revenue from modestly priced tickets, it simply was not enough to cover the expenses this year.
With this in mind, if you enjoyed the event and believe in its merits, would you please consider making a comfortable financial contribution?
