Donation Frequently Asked Questions
How can I make a donation?
Print out the donation form and mail it to BWEF 4900 Curry Rd. Pittsburgh, PA 15236
What is my donation used for?
Your donations are used to help fund the operations of the BWEF, the education grant program, and the scholarship program.
Can I direct what my donation is used for?
Yes. When you make a donation you are asked what purpose the donation can be used for. Based on your selection we will use your donation to support education grants, scholarships, or both depending on the donations.
How does the BWEF raise funds to operate?
We ask that when you make your donation that you include an extra 5 - 10% to help cover the costs of operating the BWEF.
What kind of costs does the BWEF generate?
We are a volunteer, non-profit organization so there are not salaries, but there are costs associated with hosting our website, generating mailings and donation forms, applying for corporate and government grants, and other associated office expenses. The BWEF works hard to keep expenses that are not for education grants or for scholarships at a minimum so we can maximize your generous donation.
