What is the Pittsburgh Presbyterian Foundation?

The Foundation was established in 1994 by Pittsburgh Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church (USA).  It provides a way for people of faith to make a difference for Christ through support of the mission and ministry of the Presbytery, its churches and mission agencies.

Through the generous gifts of individuals and congregations of the Presbytery, the Foundation has established permanent endowments to further the Christian ministry in our area.  Presbytery programs and projects like Crestfield Camp & Conference Center and the New Church Development campaign have benefited from Foundation support.  And over the years many churches and mission agencies of Pittsburgh Presbytery have been able to impact thousands of lives through the grants and financial support of the Foundation.

Making a gift to the Pittsburgh Presbyterian Foundation means making a difference for Christ in our community.
