Donate now: support NCJW programs


Your donation goes directly toward NCJW programs that support women, children, and families in our community. 

Through your gift you are:

  • ensuring children have new essential clothing and supplies so they are prepared, like their peers, for school.
  • supporting the well-being of women in life transitions and empowering them to achieve financial stability and independence.  
  • enabling children to stay in a nurturing, caring, and safe place while their parent/guardian deals with court matters.
  • advocating on issues such as reproductive justice, access to childcare, voting rights and economic justice.
  • giving age-appropriate books to and clothing children through the NCJW Children’s Rooms at the Court and Kids Community Closets.

All of these things happen because you support NCJW Pittsburgh Section.

Planned Gifts – Life & Legacy

Generations of women have volunteered their time and financial resources to ensure the health and financial viability of the Pittsburgh Section. We read in the Talmud, “As my father planted for me, so I plant for my children.” It is our turn to plant for our children and future generations. As we sow, so shall we reap. You can create a legacy and enable NCJW Pittsburgh Section to carry out its mission more effectively, by making a charitable bequest. The Life & Legacy program provides permanent, additional funding required to enhance NCJW’s existing programs, launch new initiatives, and be responsive to newly identified community needs. Please contact Marissa Fogel, Executive Director, at for more information.

NCJW is recognized as an organization described in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue code. Contributions to NCJW are tax deductible to the full extent provided by the law.
