Donation Options

With your gift to PCF, you become one of the many generous philanthropists who have invested in the strength of our community and the health and well-being of our neighbors.


Become a Friend or Fellow

An immediate way to make an impact at PCF is with a gift to the Here for Good Friends & Fellows Fund. PCF Friends & Fellows provide critical support for PCF’s work, including local grantmaking, donor services, and operating support. A large group of children and adults cluster together with big smiles and outreached arms outdoors on a summer day.

PCF Friends are those who make a gift of $1 – $499.

PCF Fellows are those who make a gift of $500 or more. Both are recognized on our website and annually in our publications. Fellows are also invited to attend special events.
