The Panther Club is the official fundraising arm for the University of Pittsburgh Department of Athletics. Our mission is to facilitate the philanthropic goals and passions of our loyal alumni, parents and fans, and build bridges to connect our donors to the proud traditions of Pitt Athletics. We are dedicated to providing our student-athletes with the resources necessary to achieve comprehensive excellence.

With your help, we can thrive in our mission and cultivate a culture of integrity, innovation, creativity, persistence and success.

As a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), we have a tremendous opportunity to compete against some of the most storied collegiate athletic programs in history. Competing against the best takes resources, resources that fulfill specific needs of Pitt sports programs. Your investment in the Immediate Impact Scholarship Fund or any sport-specific Championship Fund assists in creating the world-class student-athlete experience we are striving for at Pitt.

Heather Lyke


Director of Athletics

We are so incredibly fortunate to represent an institution like Pitt and have the ability to support some of the most talented student-athletes in the country. As members of the ACC, we have a tremendous opportunity to compete at an elite level both academically and athletically. Challenging ourselves in one of the strongest and most premier conferences in the country means that winning ACC championships positions each of our programs for contention for national championships as well.

Our student-athletes are united in the goal to achieve at the highest level possible in the classroom, in the community and in competition. That is The Gold Standard for Pitt Athletics. Your investment allow us to continue providing a world-class academic and athletic experience to over 750 student-athletes across 19 varsity programs, spirit squads and the Pitt band.

If you are a current Panther Club member, THANK YOU for your generous support. If you are not a current member, I encourage you to make a difference by joining today!

Thank you for your support and Hail to Pitt!
