The One Where GASP Gets a Little Cheesy About How Much Your Year-End Donation Means to Us

Can we get a little cheesy? Just for a minute?

As the year draws to a close, many of us reflect on the things we're grateful for. Here at GASP, we’re grateful for YOU. Because thanks to YOUR support, we can continue to show up and do what we do best: Be a vigilant watchdog, progressive policy advocate, and unwavering supporter of frontline communities.

As yinz know (especially those who grapple daily with pollution from industrial bad actors), clean air - while a right - has not been a given for the Pittsburgh region generally and the Mon Valley specifically. 

And improvements to our air quality haven’t come easy. It’s taken tireless advocacy, unparalleled collaboration, and unwavering dedication - all things we’ve prided ourselves on for more than 50 years.

GASP staff shows up every day and takes VERY seriously its role as our region's leading clean air watchdog, fighting for the health and well-being of our communities. 

But as we’ve said, air quality advocacy has long been a David vs. Goliath-type endeavor. Fortunately, members like you have had our backs. Your donations have helped level the playing field since 1969.

As we get ready to close the books on 2023 and jump into the new year, we want to remind you that your tax-deductible, year-end donation can do so much good and is so appreciated.

Here's why your year-end donation to GASP matters:

  • We make a direct impact on air quality: GASP's work has led to significant improvements in air quality across the region, reducing harmful pollutants and protecting the health of our neighbors.

  • We amplify the voices of frontline community members and their lived experiences: GASP works tirelessly to ensure that all voices are heard, especially those most impacted by air pollution.

  • We empower the next generation of air quality champions: GASP's educational programs equip young people with the knowledge and tools to become environmental changemakers.

Please know that your year-end donation to GASP is an investment in the health and well-being of your community. Every dollar you contribute helps us:

  • Hold polluters accountable: When necessary, GASP takes legal action against regulators and members of the regulated community that violate air quality regulations, ensuring they are held responsible for their actions.

  • Advocate for clean air policies: GASP works with policymakers at all levels to fight for stronger regulations to protect air quality.

  • Educate the public: GASP provides educational resources and programs to empower people to take action for clean air.

So this year-end, your pals here at GASP are asking you to give the gift of clean air. Your tax-deductible donation to GASP will make a real difference in the lives of people in your community.

Here are ways you can donate:

Onward and upward,

The GASP Team
