Donor Advised Funds
A Donor Advised Fund allow you to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, and recommend grants from the fund over time.
You can use our online donation form to give in a number of ways in addition to the standard one-time credit card gift:
Setting up recurring donations on a monthly basis helps guarantee that those we serve receive the appropriate care and support every day. It allows you to easily spread your support throughout the year and provide a steady and reliable stream of income to us. You can donate monthly by selecting “automatically repeat the gift every month” at out Donate page.
ACH electronic giving is a direct payment program whereby your contribution is debited automatically from your checking or savings account. Electronic contributions cannot be lost, stolen or destroyed; are resistant to errors and fraud; and are free for both you and the YW. ACH transfers make monthly giving easy, and you can cancel your authorization by notifying US at any time. Giving electronically makes it easy for you and helps YWCA Greater Pittsburgh save money!
In addition to receiving an acknowledgment and an annual gift statement from YWCA GP, your bank statement will provide an itemized list of electronic transactions. If you change bank accounts, simply notify YWCA and we will give you a new authorization form to complete. To set up an ACH payment, simply select “Checking Account” under “Payment Options” on the Donate page.
Celebrate an important milestone, such as a birthday or anniversary, or remember a loved one through an honorary or memorial gift to YWCA Greater Pittsburgh.

Select “this is an honor or memorial gift” and follow the instructions that appear at our Donate page.
