With a mix of gratitude for your unwavering support and a heavy heart, we have an announcement regarding  an important decision for PULSE. After careful consideration, consultations with our staff, Board of Directors, funders, and third-party consultants, we have come to the difficult decision that PULSE will be sunsetting at the end of the current program year.

Learn more about this decision here.



PULSE's mission is to help increase the capacity of local nonprofits by connecting people with passion to organizations with purpose.

For thirty years, we have invited university graduates and other young professionals to partner with Pittsburgh nonprofits for a year of service, community, and leadership. The criteria to be a PULSE fellow is passion. A passion for change, community, and helping others. This year allows young people to get their foot in the door to a career in nonprofits while providing the foundation to make life-long meaningful relationships with those around them. A PULSE year is one that is challenging, but deeply rewarding personally and professionally. We are so proud of the 400+ fellows that have completed this year of service and the incredible impact they have made along the way.


Give to PULSE

Help us support our last cohort of fellows and honor 30 years of connecting people with passion to organizations with purpose in the Pittsburgh community.
