On February 28, your contribution can have an even bigger impact thanks to the generosity of other donors who will be providing challenge funds. Challenge funds are used to create competition and to incentivize donors to support schools, colleges, regional campuses, University programs, and student groups by awarding challenge dollars to those areas which receive the greatest donor participation. So by making your gift, you can help your favorite area at Pitt win these challenge funds. Throughout the day, leaderboards will show progress toward the challenge goals in real time. Every gift always makes a difference, but Pitt Day of Giving offers a special opportunity to come together and maximize the impact of gifts to Pitt.
