Donor Advised Funds

Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank is proud to be a resource and partner to several of the United States’ largest donor-advised fund sponsor organizations and their philanthropic services teams, including, locally, The Pittsburgh Foundation. Clients of Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, and BNY Mellon can easily make a designation through the DAF Direct window below. For all other DAF providers, please contact your fund administrator or login to your account and search for “Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank” or EIN 25-1420599, from their list of eligible charities. Once your grant is initiated, a check will be mailed to the Food Bank on your behalf.

In addition to recommending grants in your lifetime, you can designate the Food Bank as a beneficiary of your DAF for either the remaining principal or to provide grants in perpetuity, depending on the type of your DAF. You may also name successor advisors to your DAF, such as children or grandchildren, who can continue recommending grants into the future. This is a smart way to promote family and intergenerational philanthropy and ensure our neighbors facing food insecurity have the resources they need to thrive.

Our Development Team is well-versed in the mechanics of donor-advised fund giving and the applicable IRS regulations. For more information on or questions about DAF giving, please contact Liz McFarlin-Marciak, Director of Major & Planned Giving at 412-745-0534 or by email at

Your Gift of $115 can provide 60 meals
