Maximize your support of JF&CS

On October 3, 2012, from 12:00 a.m. until 11:59:59 p.m., JF&CS supporters will have the opportunity to increase the impact of their support to JF&CS.

Every donation made to JF&CS during The Pittsburgh Foundation’s DAY OF GIVING on Wednesday October 3, 2012 will be matched on a pro-rated basis, making your gift go even further.

You can make your annual, or an additional, gift to JF&CS or the Squirrel Hill Community Food Pantry, or even use your donation toward your ticket purchase to attend JF&CS’s 75-year anniversary gala to be held on November 17.

We’ll be emailing you on October 3 with an easy link to the PittsburghGives website, but I wanted to give you the heads up now, and explain how it works:

  • Only credit card donations of $25 or more received through during the 24 hours of October 3, 2012 will be matched for this event. No donations via check, cash or stock will be accepted.
  • Go to and follow the instructions. Make sure to select Jewish Family & Children’s Service of Pittsburgh.
  • Each gift is tax deductible. If you’ve designated Jewish Family & Children’s Service as beneficiary of your generosity, JF&CS will receive your donation from The Pittsburgh Foundation, along with the pro-rated “bonus” from the match pool. Note that your credit card charge will display as a donation to “The Pittsburgh Foundation” on your credit card statement.

You cannot designate a specific program within JF&CS on the PittsburghGives website, but if you would like us to direct your gift to a specific program or toward your gala ticket purchase, just email us and let us know your intention!

Mark your calendar for the Day of Giving on October 3 and support JF&CS’s work in our community.

The work we do is instrumental in proving to individuals and families who are struggling that a better day is always within reach, and your support is essential to keeping that work going.
