Step-Up and Make an Impact

The Children’s Trust offers a giving option to allow new members to commit over a period of three years. Make a commitment to incrementally “step up” your gift over three years, and you will be recognized as a Children’s Trust member from year one, with access to all benefits.

Executive Circle:  $500 — $1,000 — $1,500
Rising Philanthropist:  $1,500 — $2,000 — $2,500

If you are interested in setting up a step-up plan, a monthly recurring gift, or have additional questions, please contact Katie McGregor, Associate Director of Annual Giving, at or 412-692-3945.
