#HalfMyDAF for Children’s

You can #HalfMyDAF for Children’s and make an incredible difference for children and families who are fighting the battle of childhood illness and disease right now. Here’s how you can help:

  1. Commit to #HalfMyDAF for Children’s by granting half the balance of your DAF to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation. Your donation may be directed to the Children’s Hospital Fund (supporting the hospital’s greatest needs) or a fund of your choice.

  2. Fill out the #HalfMyDAF matching grant nomination form to nominate Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation for a matching grant.

  3. Tag us on social media and use the #HalfMyDAF hashtag to raise awareness and encourage others with DAFs to #HalfMyDAF for Children’s. Every gift makes an impact, and the more donors who commit to #HalfMyDAF, the greater the chances that Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation will be selected for a matching grant!

Launched by former Amazon executive and non-profit leader, David Risher, and his wife, author and philanthropist, Jennifer Risher, the #HalfMyDAF Challenge encourages those who have Donor Advised Funds to put their charitable dollars to work right now.

"We want to help transform DAFs from being enormous parking lots into being funding superhighways, supporting nonprofits now, when they need it most ... Our goal is to open up the system and motivate more giving today, when nonprofits can do so much to help those in need."
- Jennifer and David Risher,
