Giving Opportunities


The Panther Club exists to provide the resources necessary for Pitt student-athletes to reach their full academic and athletic potential.

Why you should join...

The landscape of Division I intercollegiate athletics has evolved tremendously over the past 20 years. The financial investment needed to achieve comprehensive excellence as well as the cost of scholarships have continued to rise. In order to remain competitive amongst the ACC and the rest of the NCAA, we must grow our Panther Club membership and increase participation from our donors, alumni, parents, and fans. No matter the amount, YOUR contribution makes a difference and will help continue our positive momentum.

Out of approximately 332,000 living alumni, less than 3% are giving to athletics. Our strength is in our numbers and success starts with a strong commitment from our coaches and administrators, but also our alumni and fans.

“It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of the University of Pittsburgh and the surrounding community. I have met many people who share my pride in Pitt and am thankful for all the individuals who help create such a special environment at Pitt. The Panther Club is an important element of our athletic department as it helps generate the resources necessary for all of Pitt’s student-athletes to succeed in competition, in the classroom and in our community. The selfless attitude of the dedicated professionals in the department are constantly on display and an inspiration to everyone in the Pitt Athletics family.”
