Pete Love and his family created the Love Family Foundation to support numerous community efforts. It has endowed a chair at the University of Pittsburgh's Katz School of Business and created a fund for pulmonary research, in honor of his father. The Love Foundation also funded a center to study degenerative neurological diseases. The center brings doctors and research scientists together at the Oakland facility to study and treat Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) and other neuropathies, designated a Center of Excellence by the National Parkinson Foundation. Dr. Robert Moore, the School of Medicine's neurology department chair, and Dr. Michael Zigmond, professor of neuroscience co-direct the center. The Love Family Foundation also established an endowed chair in honor of Dr. Moore's work in neurology research, which has established him as one of the foremost experts in the world.
