Gifts of Cash

Gifts to The Eye & Ear Foundation are tax-deductible to the full extent of the Internal Revenue Code.  Your donation can be made by check or credit card via our donation page, mail, or phone.

If mailing a check, please make it payable to The Eye & Ear Foundation and send to:

The Eye & Ear Foundation
203 Lothrop Street

A Pledge is similar to a cash gift in that it can be made by check or credit card. Pledges, however, differ in that they include a promise to pay a specified amount annually, over a given amount of time, often four or five years. If you are interested in making a Pledge, please contact us by telephone at (412) 864-1300.

Gifts of Securities

Transferring securities electronically is another way to give to The Eye & Ear Foundation. For more information on the process of donating securities please contact the Eye & Ear Foundation at (412) 864-1300 for more information.

Grants Policy

Grants will support the advancement of care for patients through research at the University of Pittsburgh. The Eye & Ear Foundation will issue grants directly to the Departments of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology at the discretion of the Department Chairmen or through the Office of Sponsored Programs at the University of Pittsburgh. A grant for research by the Eye & Ear Foundation to the University of Pittsburgh through its Office of Sponsored Programs cannot be used to pay any indirect costs.

Thank you for making a difference!
