Pittsburgh’s Awesome, Yet Again – Top Philanthropic City in the US and 7th Best City to Raise a Family!

11 Jun

Within the past few years, Pittsburgh’s gotten named to list after list – and for good reason – we’re an awesome place to live!

Most recently, “Da’ Burgh” has been lauded with two pretty fabulous honors: we’ve been named the top philanthropic city in the United States, and, the 7th best city in the country in which to raise a family.

According to “Charity Navigator,” a nonprofit that ranks over 5,500 charities nationwide, and takes a number of factors into consideration, Pittsburgh ranks #1 in the list of “giving” cities. Last year, we were #4 on its annual list of philanthropic places.

Another list from Forbes Magazine chose 10 cities from the entire country as the Top 10 Places to raise a family. Taken into consideration were issues such as cost of living, safety and crime rate, environment, and education. To place on this list out of so many cities to chose from nationally is quite an honor. We placed 7th on this list of 10  places to raise a family in America.

It is noteworthy, too, that on a Forbes list earlier this year, Pittsburgh was ranked the number one “most livable city” in America – and it wasn’t the first time.

Pittsburgh’s just fab.

What else can ya say?  😉
