Award Goal Surpassed!

December 31, 2020

Cohort 2019 extends its deep gratitude for the overwhelming support of the Equity & Justice Spirit Award. We could never have imagined that we would meet and then surpass our goal. We know that the legacy we leave will impact the lives of many more students. Thank you for your support. Thank you for believing in our vision. Thank you for supporting equity & justice!

Gratefully Expanding our Vision

July 21, 2020



Thank you to all who have joined us in contributing to our vision of equity and justice. In less than one week, over 40 people stepped up to contribute a combined $5,805, surpassing our ambitious $5,000 target. This is a true testament to your dedication and vision for the future, and we thank you. 


Because this work does not end here, we are raising our goal to $10,000. This amount is particularly meaningful because it will allow us to set up an endowed fund that will last in perpetuity. The EngagePitt webpage continues to accept donations towards this new goal, and we encourage you to share it with others or, if you can, consider chipping in again. We look forward to updating you again soon as we continue to push for equity and justice.

Choose a giving level



Every gift helps us get to our goal, no matter the size. Thank you for recognizing the importance of equity and justice through your generosity.



You value education and understand the importance of encouraging students as they pursue higher education, facing challenges along the way.



If every member of the 2019 EdD cohort gives $150, we will reach our goal of an endowed fund (meaning, this award will last forever rather than the money just being spent down until it’s gone).


Freedom Dreamer

Your contribution at this level ensures that the Spirit Award is sustained and will continue to support students in the future as they dream big.


Equity Warrior

You are committed to supporting the endowment through this generous gift, knowing that supporting Black students in the School of Education will pay dividends in the future as they fight for equity and justice. A gift at this level provides assurances that the fund will be available for years to come.
