ACC Challenge: All in for Students

Join Pitt and the other schools of the ACC by going all in for students this week!

ACC Challenge: All in for Students

Starting August 21, Pitt will join fellow Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) institutions in a week-long collective effort to raise funds for the programs, initiatives, and organizations that make an extraordinary impact on the most important members of our community. It’s called All in for Students, and it’s our way of ensuring scholars and athletes across all ACC institutions have access to the best college experiences possible. 

We may be fierce competitors on the field, court, and pitch, but the institutions of the ACC have always been united by a tradition of excellence. As a proud member of the Pitt community, we challenge you to go all in by making a gift to one of the below student-focused funds. Let's show our friends in the ACC that Pitt, your reigning ACC champion, gets the job done - together, we are unstoppable!

Pitt Fund

Gifts to the Pitt Fund have the most immediate and beneficial impact because they allow the chancellor to move money where it's needed, when it's needed. Historically, the Pitt Fund has provided funding for pioneering research, financial support for outstanding students, and seed money to launch new campus projects and academic endeavors. 

General Scholarship Fund

The General Scholarship Fund provides much-needed tuition assistance to individuals, giving each student the opportunity to achieve academically, and give back through remarkable contributions as Pitt alumni. 

Student Emergency Assistance Fund

The Student Emergency Assistance Fund is used to provide financial support for degree-seeking students of the University of Pittsburgh with unanticipated and insurmountable expenses related to emergency situations that may result in students facing financial hardship. 

Pitt Pantry

The Pitt Pantry is dedicated to ensuring that all students have consistent access to a balanced and nutritious diet by hosting regular shopping hours to obtain needed food items. It is completely volunteer-run and operates on charitable donations received from individuals and organizations within the community. 

Student-Athlete Success Fund

The Student-Athlete Success Fund directly impacts the lives of our 850 student-athletes, spirit squads, and the Pitt Band by providing scholarships, educational support, student-athlete wellness, leadership development, and new technology to help them be champions in competition and in life. 

Will you accept the challenge and go all in for Pitt students today?
