Ways to Give

Alumni often ask how they can make the biggest impact through giving. Giving to our Annual Giving Fund will put your gift to work where it’s needed most: impacting the recruitment and training of the next generation. Your gift provides student scholarships and aids the search for solutions to the world’s most pressing problems.

By supporting the GSPIA Internship Resource Fund, you allow students to apply what they learn in the classroom, explore a career path, and make valuable career connections.

The generous support of alumni has enabled us to recruit some of our top-notch students and faculty, reward high-achieving students, provide support for professional development, and establish centers and institutes that work to find solutions to diverse challenges.

Interested in learning more about giving to GSPIA? Contact Libby Hilf, Director of Alumni Relations and Development. 

Additional ways to give

  • By creating an endowment, you’re funding scholarships, fellowships, and faculty chairs. Many of our endowed funds have a specific focus, such as supporting a particular academic emphasis or assisting students with additional funding needs.

  • You can leave a legacy and make gifts through bequests, retirement plans, and life insurance.

  • Honor classmates, friends, colleagues, and loved ones with a gift to GSPIA.

  • Many employers match charitable contributions made by their employees. You may be able to double or triple your gift by participating in such a program in your workplace.

  • Mail a check to University of Pittsburgh, Alumni Relations and Development, 3408 Posvar Hall, Pittsburgh, PA 15260. (Make your check payable to “University of Pittsburgh.”) You can also call 412-648-7608 to make a credit card gift, or make a gift online.

The financial support that I received allowed me to complete a national security internship in Washington, D.C., and gain firsthand experience in countering weapons of mass destruction policy implementation. My experience in D.C. has opened doors for my future career that otherwise would have remained shut. —Natalie Lemmo, MPIA ’19
