Privacy Policy

This website is owned and operated by The Pittsburgh Foundation. We are committed to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity, and security of personal information entrusted to us. Your right to privacy is very important to us.


We don’t collect personally identifiable information about individuals unless they knowingly provide it to us.

If you are a Pittsburgh Foundation donor and want to access information about your fund, it will be necessary for you to provide personally identifiable information. This may include your name, address, email address and phone number. Any information you provide is maintained in a secure system.  We will not share any information you provide to us with any other organization.

Customer Lists

When you register to receive information, such as a Newsletter, or identify your areas of interest, we add your name to our customer list. Once you provide us with personal or professional information, that data remains confidential and will only be used by The Pittsburgh Foundation. We authorize our employees to view your personal information only when necessary to serve you better. We will not share any information you provide to us with any other organization.


We use our customer lists for follow-up contacts with you. This is our way of keeping you up to date on our services, programs, and benefits. This also enables you to receive current information about the local, national, and global community to better meet your philanthropic needs. We maintain e-mail mailboxes in an effort to support customers who visit us online. We read every e-mail message that we receive and do our best to respond within 48 hours, if a response is required. We do not record your e-mail address unless you have voluntarily provided it to us when you register to receive follow-up information. If you do provide us with your e-mail address, and register your interest in receiving follow-up information, we may notify you from time to time about The Pittsburgh Foundation’s products, services, and benefits. At all times, we include "opt-out" instructions with the e-mail that is sent to you.


We do not use cookies to collect any type of personal information or to extract any information from your computer.

Security Online

When using our forms to register or receive information from The Pittsburgh Foundation, we use secure pages to ensure that the information sent between your computer and our system is secure. We use the Secure Service Layer (SSL) encryption method for all secure submissions. This method is generally accepted to insure that the transmission of personal information is secure. Some common browsers, i.e. Internet Explorer, make it obvious when information is being passed in a secure manner by displaying either a completed key or a closed lock on the screen.
