Leave a legacy that grows.
Include Grow Pittsburgh in your estate plans

A legacy gift to Grow Pittsburgh makes you a member of our Orchard Circle, benefitting future generations of people who want to learn to grow food for themselves and their neighbors, while helping you meet your philanthropic and financial goals. 

We created the Orchard Circle in 2021 to recognize donors who have made legacy gifts to help gardens and fresh food flourish for years to come. As a gardener and a food lover, you know that orchards, once established, will bear fruit for decades to come. 

As a member of Grow Pittsburgh’s Orchard Circle, you can ensure that your love of sharing healthy local food and gardening will continue to make positive impacts for years to come. Through a bequest, you can make a lasting future impact and leave a legacy that keeps on growing.

A legacy gift allows you to increase your support for Grow Pittsburgh’s mission without impacting your current needs.  The simplest way to make such a gift is through your Will. There are many other options, such as making a gift through your IRA or other retirement plan or through life insurance. And if you’re interested in endowment or  life income options, we’re happy to connect you with expert advisors at The Pittsburgh Foundation who can help. 

Your gift will help provide the resources for gardens to flourish for future generations for people to learn how to grow their own food. Please consider Grow Pittsburgh and your love of gardening as part of your plans.

“I believe that everyone can eat fresh, healthy food that they helped grow. There are a lot of people who don’t have access to real food, so I like the idea of enabling people to grow their own. I support Grow Pittsburgh today and in the future through a charitable bequest in my will.”

– John, retired school teacher and Orchard Circle member
