Monthly Sustaining Donors Program

Become a monthly sustainer and support our local community and people in need around the world with your monthly donation.

Now you can contribute monthly to support the Federation hassle-free, just like a gym membership or streaming music service! Contact our Donor Services Associate for more information on getting set up. Then sit back, relax, and know that you are engaging in tikkun olam – the repair of the world – every month.

Why Should You Become a Monthly Sustainer?

When you commit to giving a monthly gift, of any amount, the tax-deductible donations provide us with consistent, reliable revenue. All contributions benefit the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh Annual Campaign, which is our primary fundraising effort. It provides the essential unrestricted dollars needed to support organizations in our community that provide amazing services to those in need here in Pittsburgh, Israel, and around the world.


If you would like to become a Monthly Sustainer please contact our Donor Services Associate at 412-992-5255 or DonorServices@jfedpgh.org.
