The second mailing of the Pitt-Greensburg Alumni Association Annual Fund will be arriving in your mailbox shortly. If you were unable to participate during the first phase of the campaign, or if you would like to increase your donation, this is your chance.

The Pitt-Greensburg Annual Fund supports all areas of the University including, but not limited to: Academic programs and experiential education; Campus Growth including facilities, faculty, and staff; Athletics, Student Government, Clubs and Campus Life; and Scholarships, Endowments and Financial Aid. 

Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders.  Your contributions add to their success and the success of the University. You can apply your contribution to a particular program or part of the campus or towards a certain Scholarship or Endowment. This is your opportunity to be a part of the many benefits that Pitt-Greensburg has to offer.

As a bonus to Pitt-Greensburg, you can enhance your donation by indicating that your employer offers matching gifts. Your gift will make a difference and for that we are grateful.
Thank you!

Volunteers are needed to help with Monthly Networking luncheons, Open Houses, a fall Reunion Event, forming a Student Alumni Association, Graduation, Croquet, and the Harvest Walk...just to name a few.
