The Pittsburgh Kids Foundation depends on the generous giving of people like you. Whether it's to send a kid to summer camp or feed an orphan in Haiti, your gift will make a tremendous difference in the life of a kid!

Support the PKF

The PKF is a 501c3 and all donations are tax deductible. Your support is appreciated. 




We are honored and grateful to be a recipient of a grant from the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation.  Their generosity, as well as the commonality of our mission to make a difference in the lives of young people, has helped us to continue to provide scholarships for those who otherwise would not be able to experience the life-changing effects of our Surf City summer camp.  We are thankful for their investment in us so that we can continue to invest in the lives of the many young people who are our future.


Hurricane Matthew Relief Fund

Dear Friends of the PKF,
I know you are all fully aware that Haiti is again "recovering" from a major natural disaster. We are very grateful to report that all 156 of the children at our three orphanages are safe and dry. However, many of our friends in Haiti have lost their homes and are in desperate need of immediate assistance. The PKF has set up a "Hurricane Matthew Relief Fund" to address the basic needs of food, water, clothing, shelter and medical supplies. Our staff on the ground in Haiti is already in the process of identifying those in greatest need. I am grateful for the network of ministry partners in place and ready to go as a result of our relief efforts following the recent earthquake. If you would like to make a monetary donation to our relief efforts please click the "donate" button on the right side of the page.  Indicate "Hurricane Matthew Relief Fund".  Your generous response will greatly aid and expedite the recovery of our friends in Haiti who are desperately in need. 

We Are In This Adventure Together,
