Donate Funds to JF&CS

Without the help of our partners and supporters like you, the work of JF&CS would not be possible.

Thank you for your generosity.

Donation Options:

Single Gift

We'll help as many people as possible with your gift. Select JF&CS Annual, or designated program or fund, in the Donation drop-down menu on the Donate page.

Recurring Gift

Knowing we can count on your contribution helps us budget for the many services we provide to those who are struggling. Our monthly giving program consists of a compassionate group of supporters who make a scheduled gift each month. Click the Recurring Gift option on the Donate page.

Tribute Gifts

There's no better way to honor, remember or recognize someone special. We'll send a personalized card acknowledging your thoughtfulness. Select JF&CS Tribute in the Donation drop-down menu option on the Donate page and be sure to enter all tribute information (tribute message/signature, name and address where tribute should be sent).

Stock Gifts & Securities

Donating appreciated securities (stocks, bonds or mutual funds you've held for more than one year) is typically an excellent way to reduce or avoid capital gains taxes and receive a federal income tax charitable deduction. Click here for JF&CS's stock gift information sheet.

In-Kind Donations

JF&CS welcomes in-kind donations to our Food Pantry. The Pantry can use nonperishable food, personal care items and diapers. Refer to our Pantry Shopping List to view a list of most-needed items.

Our Refugee & Immigrant Services program is unable to accept donations of clothing, bedding, household items, food or furniture at this time. Please donate these items to the appropriate worthy agencies that serve our community.

Auto Donations

Donate your car to JF&CS through our partner North Hills Community Outreach's Community Auto program, which makes vehicle ownership affordable to low-income individuals and families so they have a reliable means of transportation. Click here for more information or to donate. Make sure you specify "Jewish Family & Children's Service" as the beneficiary at the bottom of the online form.

Planned Gifts

Create a legacy of caring. Establish an endowment or make a charitable bequest to help ensure we may continue to provide critical human services to those who are struggling with lifecycle transitions and crises. Contact our development officer at 412.422.7200 for more information.

Jewish Family & Children's Service is a 501(c)(3) organization. Contributions are deductible under section 170 of the IRS Code.
