Pitt-Johnstown, through your individual generosity and campus-wide giving, earned third place in the University of Pittsburgh’s school participation challenge during the inaugural Pitt Day of Giving, February 28, 2017.
Through this challenge, $57,500 was distributed among the top three of 20 participating schools or regional campuses.
Pitt’s School of Pharmacy was first and the School of Health and Rehabilitation Services was second.
By placing, Pitt-Johnstown not only receives your Pitt Day of Giving donations, but an additional $12,500 from Pitt Day of Giving challenge fund donors, rewarding our high degree of participation.
The Day of Giving coincided with the 230th anniversary of Pitt Founders Day with a goal of decreasing future student loan debt through increased giving to scholarships. The Day of Giving garnered more than $5.5 million and 5,577 gifts.
The final Pitt-Johnstown donation amount will be shared once it is tallied and announced.
