Legacy Creation

The Community Foundation’s Legacy Society celebrates those who have made a commitment to care for our community in the future by including CFA as a beneficiary of a gift from their estate. We are also honored to work with donors of all types to design legacies around causes that are close to their heart. That may include a gift to an existing endowed fund, the creation of a fund of your own, or a number of other possibilities. We work hard to help you achieve your philanthropic dreams in the most impactful way possible.

If you are looking for assistance with estate planning, we can even connect you with one of the wealth advisors in our Philanthropic Leaders Advisory Network—or PLAN (see a list in the link below). Just reach out to CFA Director of Donor Services Katrina Perkosky at or 814-208-8411 to get started.

Supporting Organizations

These funds act under the Community Foundation’s fiscal and administrative oversight, but with their own board and mission.

The Foundation for Pennsylvania Watersheds (FPW), formerly known as the Western Pennsylvania Watershed Program, is a grant-making foundation that invests in efforts to protect healthy, natural streams around the state—and also to clean up pollution and repair damaged wildlife habitat.

FracTracker was originally developed to investigate health concerns and data gaps surrounding western Pennsylvania fracking. Today, as a non-profit organization, FracTracker Alliance supports groups across the United States, addressing pressing extraction-related concerns with a lens toward health effects and exposure risks from oil and gas development. The organization provides timely and provocative data, ground-breaking analyses, maps, and other visual tools to help advocates, researchers, and the concerned public better understand the harms posed by hydrocarbon extraction.

In 2011, the John P. Murtha Foundation became associated with the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies. We are grateful for the opportunity to be of service in working together in our mutual goals of bettering our community.

The mission of the Pittsburgh Food Policy Council is to build a food system that benefits our communities, economy, and environment in ways that are just, equitable, and sustainable. Driven by community-led solutions, we bring together over 80 entities and 120 individuals to re-imagine our region’s food system and seek policies that promote local food growing, sustainable agriculture, equitable development, and access to healthy food, particularly in low-income communities.

The Southwest Pennsylvania Environmental Health Project is a nonprofit environmental health organization created to assist and support Washington County residents who believe their health has been, or could be, impacted by natural gas drilling activities.
