Your gift empowers lifelong leaders
Help Pitt Business Grow and Succeed
Your philanthropic support ensures the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business and College of Business Administration will continue to grow and succeed. You are crucial to our efforts to develop tomorrow’s business leaders.
Areas of Greatest Need
Dean’s Excellence Fund
A gift to this fund provides an immediate and essential source of funding. By making an unrestricted contribution, you allow the school to direct the funding toward the areas of greatest need. Annual, expendable gifts provide Pitt Business vital flexibility to support a variety of areas and remain at the forefront of business education.
Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
Learning, valuing and having experience working in diverse and inclusive environments is a critical skill that we strive for all Pitt Business students to achieve. Gifts to this fund will support programming to teach students how to implement a diversity strategy in the workplace and prepare our graduates to become catalysts for change. Dean Assad’s vision is that equity, diversity, and inclusion will be fully integrated in the curriculum and serve as a focal point for our school.
A new opportunity for Pitt students to be catalysts for change is underway in the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business.

Many employers match charitable contributions made by their employees. Find out how you can double or even triple the size of your gift to Pitt by participating in a workplace matching gift program.
Endowed funds are charitable contributions that provide a perpetual stream of income in support of scholarships, fellowships, faculty chairs, instruction, and other important programs or services. They allow major gift donors to establish named funds that will exist in perpetuity and provide permanent support for students within a particular area or for a specific purpose. Minimum endowment levels guarantee that sufficient income will be available to fulfill the donor’s specific intentions.
Unlike endowed funds, current funds can be distributed in the same year they are received. They are a terrific alternative for those who might have excess funds available each year but who do not have the full endowment minimum to make a gift in perpetuity. Similarly, they are ideal for annual IRA disbursements or lump-sum gifts to fund research projects, travel, or faculty and student awards for a designated number of years.
Planned Giving options allow you to amplify the impact of your generosity to the University of Pittsburgh and to potentially create lifetime income streams and reduce your taxes. You can leave a legacy through bequests, retirement plans, and life insurance.
