The top priority of the Panther Club is to provide the best academic and athletic opportunities for Pitt's student-athletes.

Currently, it costs nearly $30,000 to provide one full scholarship to an out-of-state student-athlete for a year. Gifts to the Panther Club Athletic Scholarship Fund play a pivotal role in offsetting these rapidly escalating scholarship costs.

With your continued and generous support, Pitt can recruit, educate and train the best and brightest student-athletes-regardless of their home state-while providing them the opportunity to compete athletically at the highest levels.

You can have an immediate impact on the lives of Pitt's student-athletes by participating as an annual member of the Panther Club. The Panther Club offers several gift levels with many benefits associated with each-starting as low as $100 annually. However, the greatest benefit is knowing that your gift provides a deserving young woman or man the opportunity to receive an education at a world-class University.

Your support of Pitt Athletics and our student-athletes are greatly appreciated and will be recognized in one of the membership and benefit levels. Please print the Membership Application (Click Here) and make your gift TODAY!

"Extra Effort", a Panther Club initiative launched in 2006, encourages donors, like Pitt's more than 450 Student-athletes on the fields of play and in the classroom, to give 110 percent. The initiative encourages donors to increase their annual gift by 10% from the previous fiscal year. Increasing your gift will make a difference in the lives of our student-athletes, and, will help directly offset our annual athletic scholarship costs.
