Student-Athlete Success Fund

The Student-Athlete Success Fund directly impacts the lives of our 850 student-athletes, spirit squads, and the Pitt Band by providing vital resources for them to be champions in competition and in life. Your support helps provide the most critical needs including scholarships, educational support, student-athlete wellness, leadership development, and new technology. All gifts to the Student-Athlete Success Fund give Panther student-athletes the opportunity to pursue championships while also earning a world-class university of Pittsburgh education.

"Growing up, my primary goal was always to earn a scholarship to play college football. The University of Pittsburgh has made that a reality for me. Thanks to the support of the Panther Club, I have the opportunity to earn a degree from one of the top academic universities in the world – right here in my hometown of Pittsburgh. That is something that I always be thankful for and never take for granted."

— Damar Hamlin, Senior, Football

Championship Funds

With the goal of establishing each of our teams as perennial championship contenders in the ACC, we have created sport-specific Championship Funds to assist donors to give directly towards the Pitt teams they care about most. Success is a byproduct of support and encouragement that comes from generous donors like you and by supporting these championship funds we can ensure that our student-athletes receive a collegiate experience second to none.
