Dear Pitt News donors,

We can't thank you all enough for showing your support for student journalism last year by contributing to our crowdfunding campaign, which raised an impressive $15,270.

Some of you were Pitt News alums who remember and value your time at your student newspaper. But many were not, and we're grateful to those of you who stepped up to help a valuable student organization, especially at a time when there are so many people in need.

We still face many challenges, but rest assured that the students who publish The Pitt News are as dedicated as ever to shining the vital and irreplaceable light of journalism on our world. They welcome your feedback — look forward to it, in fact — and are always happy to hear from alums in journalism. 

Thanks again for your help. It makes a difference.

Raising the Bar - Again!

July 23, 2020

All of you alumni, friends and supporters of journalism are amazing. You've helped us reach our stretch goal of $10,000, so we're stretching again to $15,000. Please keep spreading the word and encouraging more people to help The Pitt News. Our students are working very hard to sell ads into our big Welcome Back print edition for mid-August, and it's understandably challenging: Businesses are struggling like we are, and it's hard for them to commit. That's why we're even more grateful to all of you for sharing and supporting our campaign. Our thanks to everyone who's helped us get this far. Keep it going.

Thank you for an amazing start!

Pitt Community,


Thanks to the generosity of alumni, faculty, staff, friends and family, the crowdfunding campaign for The Pitt News is off to an amazing start. On behalf of everyone at the newspaper, we want to share our sincerest thanks. With 57 days left, we’ve reached 100% of our original goal! We have now added a stretch goal of $10,000 to keep this momentum going and help fund operating costs like student salaries. Please continue to share the campaign with others to help us reach our goal! Once again THANK YOU!
