There are many simple ways to include Silver Eye in your estate plans, and you’ll need to talk to your financial advisor about the option that offers the best financial benefit to you and to the organization.

Gifts of Securities

Donating stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares can often lead to a much larger gift than donors think they can give.

Gifts by Bequest

Naming Silver Eye in your will or living trust allows you can make a meaningful gift while maintaining control of your assets during life. Your gift can be a specific amount of money or a percentage of your estate.

Other Planned Gift Options

There are countless other ways to donate assets, and your financial advisor will be a wealth of information about your options.

Sponsorships & Corporate Giving Opportunities

Add value for your clients and employees through brand association, networking opportunities and more. Silver Eye’s sponsorship opportunities for corporations, organizations and individuals offer custom-made benefits based on your needs.


We offer sponsorship and underwriting opportunities at various levels. Exhibition sponsorships offer significant philanthropic and marketing opportunities. Our exhibitions bring in artists of national and international renown for show openings and closings. Often times, these artists are available for private networking parties.


Silver Eye hosts a variety of events from educational opportunities (both in-school and in-gallery) to our biannual Auction. As a sponsor your company will receive publicity and increased awareness with Pittsburgh’s most savvy arts patrons.

Annual Fund

Silver Eye relies on the contributions of generous donors to help fulfill our mission of celebrating photography, both as an expressive art form and as a medium that brings to light the details and larger stories that influence and inform an understanding of ourselves and the world.

Support the area’s only photography organization dedicated to the understanding, appreciation, education, and promotion of photography during our annual campaign, generally held at the end of the calendar year. We’re proud to introduce viewers to new work made by emerging and established photographers, and to host lectures, panel discussions, workshops, portfolio reviews, interactive gallery tours, video screenings, and more.

Questions about giving levels and the different opportunities listed above can be directed to or by calling 412.431.1810.
