About
The Pitterich Foundation is a certified 501 (c) (3) organization that was established by Michael P. Pitterich in 2008. Mr. Pitterich’s efforts with foundations actually began several years ago when he donated to and later became a partner in Belanger, Federico & Pitterich, which was based in Baltimore, MD. In recent years, through his own foundation and others, he has personally donated or helped to raise more than $500,000 for a variety of charitable causes.
 
The primary mission of the Pitterich Foundation is to raise money for leukemia and bone marrow disease research, and assist other foundations in related fields. Mr. Pitterich's brother, Joseph, died at age 53 from leukemia, which was detected at age 51.  Mr. Pitterich's sister, Susan, was diagnosed with leukemia at age 57. Her disease is now in remission and her treatment at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA, was assisted by work and research performed at Johns Hopkins University. Johns Hopkins University and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) have both been the recipient of funding from the Pitterich Foundation.

The Pitterich Foundation has also donated money to organizations that benefit children. The Cool Kids Campaign in Baltimore, MD, and Dapper Dan Charities in Pittsburgh, PA are two such organizations. The Cool Kids Campaign provides items such as computers, books, pajamas and other essentials to improve the quality of life for children battling cancer. Dapper Dan Charities raises funds for sports programs at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania that serve more than 7,000 youngsters.
