DONOR ADVISED FUNDS Donor-advised funds allow you to give to your favorite charity with ease of use and many of the benefits of a private foundation.

You can support the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy by recommending a grant from your donor-advised fund (DAF), which is a popular and flexible way to fulfill your philanthropic goals. To recommend a grant, simply contact the organization that sponsors your DAF and recommend that a grant be made to the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy.

If you're interested in giving through your donor-advised fund, please contact Alana Wenk (, Director of Advancement, for more information. 

GIFTS OF APPRECIATED SECURITIES Support Pittsburgh's parks by making a gift of stocks, bonds, or mutual funds.

In addition to making a positive and lasting impact on Pittsburgh's parks, a gift of appreciated securities offers you significant benefits. These include an immediate charitable deduction for the full market value of the stock and avoidance of capital gains taxes that would normally be due upon sale.
