The Panther Club exists to provide the resources necessary for Pitt student-athletes to reach their full academic and athletic potential. In the rapidly changing landscape of Division I athletics, we will become leaders in growing and sustaining philanthropic support, and be in constant pursuit of innovative ideas to enhance the student-athlete experience.

“The support the Panther Club provides all of our student-athletes at Pitt is absolutely amazing. Their support truly impacts our program daily and allows all of us to develop as students and athletes while at Pitt. I am forever grateful to all the members of the Panther Club for supporting my academic and athletic aspirations! H2P!”

NCAA Booster Compliance
Your membership in the Panther Club also makes you a booster, or what the NCAA refers to as a "representative of the institution's athletics interests." As a Booster for the University of Pittsburgh Athletics Department, please know that Pitt is responsible for the actions of its boosters. Violations of NCAA rules involving boosters, alumni, or fans of Pitt can have a negative effect on the relevant prospects and/or student-athletes, Pitt's athletic program, and the national perception of the University. In addition, student-athletes or prospects may lose their eligibility for intercollegiate competition.
Further, a booster that intentionally violates NCAA, ACC, or Pitt rules may be disassociated from Pitt's athletics program, resulting in the revocation or withholding of any athletically related benefit or privilege received by that individual from Pitt. Additionally, once a person, agency, business, or other organization is identified as a booster, that entity retains the title forever. Please reference the Booster link by clicking here.
The Panther Club's support has been a crucial component for me in my time at the University of Pittsburgh. Their hard work and dedication has allowed me to be in a position to be successful both on and off the field.
