There is just ONE day left to support the Robert S. Atkin Endowed Fund!

December 07, 2017

Over the last two months, Pitt Business has honored a faculty member who has committed over 30 years to the University and always puts his students first.  The Engage Pitt campaign in honor of Robert Atkin has been a great success and we are delighted to share that we have surpassed our goal not once, but twice!  We cannot thank the Pitt Business community enough for the support.


An anonymous donor has made a generous donation with the hope that it will inspire others to give.  Our campaign will end tomorrow at midnight! With just one day left, we ask you to help us raise the remaining $2,405 needed to reach our final goal of $20,000 by spreading the word! Please take a moment to share our link or donate now! 


We are overwhelmed by your response to this project.  On behalf of Pitt Business, THANK YOU!

We Cannot Thank You Enough!

November 14, 2017

On behalf of everyone at Pitt Business, thank you for your overwhelming support of our EngagePitt campaign in honor of Professor Robert Atkin’s 30+ years of teaching.  We are incredibly grateful for your generosity and are excited to share that we reached our goal of $10,000 within the first month of our campaign.  These funds will help current and future Pitt Business students through scholarships, access to professional development opportunities, study abroad support, and so much more!

We are excited and inspired by the remarkable response of our alumni network.  With 22 days left until the close of the campaign, we are increasing our goal to $15,000.  Reaching this goal will go a long way in offsetting costs for students -- helping to ensure that students graduate on time and that they have every opportunity to succeed to their highest potential without financial worry. 

Thank you and Hail to Pitt!

Dear Friends,

Thank you so much for your generous support of The Robert S. Atkin Endowed Fund. It has only been two weeks since we launched this campaign in honor of Professor Bob Atkin and we have already reached 80% of our goal! It goes without saying that Professor Atkin has impacted the lives of so many Pitt Business alumni and it is thanks to generous donors like you that we are off to such a great start. 

In the coming weeks, we will maintain momentum by reaching out to more alumni and friends. We ask that you help us reach our goal by sharing this campaign with your Pitt Business networks. 

Hail to Pitt!
