Our Philanthropic Priorities

Pitt School of Education Fund

Your gift to this fund is very important, as it is an unrestricted fund that will be used to support our school's greatest strategic needs as determined by the dean. 

Student Support Funds

Scholarships are a crucial resource for many of our students who may otherwise have difficulty funding their education. Your support to the Pitt School of Education Scholarship Fund, the Centennial Student Resource Fund, or the establishment of a new student support fund will help to ensure that every student has access to a quality education.

Faculty Support Funds

The faculty at the Pitt School of Education make significant contributions to education policy, practice, and literature through their research and collaboration with various community partners. Establishing a Chair or a Professorship fund is a critical part of our effort to both recruit and retain renowned faculty and educational leaders that will help our school continue to serve our students and the community.

Centers and Institutes

Each of the centers and institutes at the Pitt School of Education represent an important community partnership and learning opportunity for our students. Gifts will support the outreaching and programming efforts that have a significant impact on the centers and institutes.

Endowed Funds
