Project Paw Print- The 2018 Senior Class Gift
What is Project Paw Print?
Project Paw Print is a student-led Philanthropy Council that is dedicated to educating the Pitt community on the importance of philanthropy, recognizing and thanking those who have chosen to give back, and helping their fellow students give back to Pitt.
What are we doing?
We are paying it forward! Project Paw Print is about supporting each other, building a community, and making our mark on the University. We are raising money for the Senior Legacy Student Resource Fund – an endowed fund that the class of 2016 helped to establish. We want to help grow the endowment so we can support more deserving students in the future.
The Senior Legacy Student Resource Fund is our way of supporting the Pitt community and saying thank you to the University. The fund will help a rising Pitt sophomore, junior, and/or senior student pay for books, lab fees, travel, and other educational expenses. These are expenses every student has and if we can unite to make someone's semester a little less stressful by donating a few dollars...well that's a no brainer!
Why is Project Paw Print important?
Pitt has supported us since we stepped foot on campus. The University gave us the tools we needed to grow both academically and personally. Each one of us soon-to-be graduates have been supported by both Pitt and each other during our precious time here on campus. Project Paw Print is about uniting our class so we can pay it forward and make our mark on campus. It is a way for us to strengthen the Pitt community, create a culture of philanthropy and impact Pitt students for years to come.
The class of 2016 began paving the way and we want to honor their accomplishments, and build upon them. Our goal is to make Project Paw Print and the Senior Class Gift a long-standing tradition at the University of Pittsburgh.
What’s the goal?
Our goal is to raise money for the Senior Legacy Student Resource Fund, which will help a rising Pitt sophomore, junior, and/or senior student pay for books, lab fees, travel and other educational expenses. The more we raise, the more students we can impact.
However, this is about more than raising money. We are also trying to come together to create a culture of philanthropy and strengthen the Pitt community.
