Join GASP Today in the Fight for Clean Air!

GASP works to improve air quality to ensure human, environmental, and economic health in Southwestern Pennsylvania and beyond. The more members we have, the more influential we are when we litigate, meet with decision makers, and speak to local elected officials. Our membership can make decision-makers pay attention. From coke ovens to diesel pollution, coal-fired power plants to Marcellus Shale–your support will make a difference.

Becoming a Member of GASP is Easy!

Membership Levels

$20 – Education Advocate

Your donation of $20 helps GASP purchase the essentials for educational programming – things like pig lungs and crud catchers.

$50 – Dirty Gertie the Poor Polluted Birdie Backer

Your donation of $50 helps GASP’s longtime mascot Dirty Gertie the Poor Polluted Birdie – now in puppet form – fly again, funding that allows us to send educator and artist Dave English into a classroom near you to help kids understand air quality in a way that’s not scary OR boring.

$250 – Communications Collaborator

Your donation of $250 supports GASP’s communications and community engagement initiatives. Think informational blogs, daily social media posts, and our weekly e-newsletter that lets you know about everything from air quality exceedances to upcoming meetings to important action alerts.

$500 – Watchdog Warrior

Your donation of $500 helps support our crucial watchdog work that keeps both regulators (like the Allegheny County Health Department) AND the regulated community (legacy polluters like U.S. Steel) accountable.

$1,000 – Clean Air Change Maker

Your donation of $1,000 helps support our big-picture work: Tackling environmental justice issues, researching and advocating for more protective public health measures, and providing technical comments on air quality regulations and permits to proactively reduce pollution levels in our local neighborhoods.

You can make PayPal donation with our drop-down menu below or enter a custom amount here.
