Vision for Life – Pittsburgh is a Christian non-profit whose goal is not only to make a statement, but to make a difference.

In the Fall of 2009 Marie Vaina and Chris Humphrey learned that each was independently looking for ways to use media to change minds and hearts, and to save lives. A committee was formed (Jeff Steigerwalt joined us), and began meeting to explore the possibility of bringing pro-life media campaigns to Pittsburgh.

After a meeting with representatives of different pro-life groups, we began to enlarge our committee and to seek the endorsement of pregnancy counseling centers, pro-life educational groups, religious leaders, and other prominent members of the community, as a preliminary to fundraising. In early February 2010 we incorporated as the non-profit Vision for Life – Pittsburgh (PA Entity No. 3934985). At the beginning of March we applied to the Internal Revenue Service for 501(c)(3) status, letting us issue tax-deductible receipts. Since late 2010 we have run pro-life ads on TV, bus shelters, buses, Google search results, Internet display advertising and Facebook.

In December 2013, Jeff Steigerwalt, Marie Vaina and Nathalie Kovacic stepped down, and Joelle Sykes, Brian Follett (President of Heroic Media) and James Coffey (Vice-President for Advancement, the Papal Foundation) joined the Board. In 2014 we welcomed Donna Pace, Susan LeCornu and Elizabeth Veres to the Board. In 2015 Elizabeth and Susan stepped down, and Harry and Barb Griffiths and Bette Moore joined the Board. Harry and Barb are Co-Chairs of Vision for Life.

It is our prayer that many hearts and minds may be changed, and that many lives will be saved. Please pray for us and for the success of these fundraising and media campaigns, and help us out as you are able.
