Bob is a proud supporter of charities both personally and through his company “Evolution Industries”. In past years this has included “Toys for Tots”, “Celtic Charities”, “The James Harrison Family Foundation” and “The Long Island Bull-dog Rescue”.
He is a long time supporter of the “PA Vent Camp” which became the focus of his documentary film, “A Week Without Limits.” Bob’s company sponsored a “pre-release” premiere for the kids, benefiting the children of Vent Camp.
Bob even took to the catwalk as a t-shirt model for “Glitzburgh” at Club Static, benefiting the Children’s Institute of Pittsburgh. In addition to participating in the celebrity modeling event, Bob also provided media coverage for the event via his production company which was utilized for marketing purposes during the event.
One of the most touching experiences in contributing to charities was his involvement with “From Broadway with Love”, a benefit for the Sandy Hook shooting victims in Connecticut:
“My involvement with “From Broadway with Love” was one of the most moving experiences in my life. Seeing all of the amazingly talented Broadway stars coming together to help these families was inspiring. Watching the siblings of the shooting victims while they became lost in the show brought me to tears. The selfless acts of these amazing artists left me in awe. It was a truly humbling experience and a privilege to be involved.” – Bob Magill
Additionally Bob is a supporter and advocate of youth education in the film industry offering internships through his production company and opening his film/TV sets to local film school students. He also strongly supports the growth of the film industry in Pittsburgh and does so by shooting the majority of his productions in the Greater Pittsburgh area. This mission also aligns with the goals of the “Pittsburgh Film Office” of which he is a strong supporter.
Most recently Bob has joined forces with “The Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council”.
