Pitt Legacy Fund

“Honor the past, help build the future”

Elite8

The Pitt Legacy Fund is a new initiative designed to establish a connection with former Gorilla student-athletes. It is designed to give former student-athletes, regardless of age, an option to “give back” to PSU and help current Gorilla student-athletes continue working to build a highly-successful and highly-visible broad-based Division II athletics program. The hope is that the Pitt Legacy Fund provides an affordable option for former letter winners to make an initial annual gift that allows them the opportunity to gradually increase giving back to PSU over time.

When a former student-athlete makes a Legacy Fund gift, 100% of the gift is tax-deductible. Fifty percent of the gift will be placed in the athletics general scholarship fund that helps build the annual scholarship budget for all sports. The other 50% will be placed in the PSU Foundation account for the sport in which the donor participated. Spending from these accounts is at the discretion of the head coach and athletics director and these funds supplement each sport’s annual operating budget for expenses such as equipment, travel, and recruiting. Recent Gorilla student-athletes can participate at any level, but levels are specially designated for those in their first year after participation and for those under the age of 30.

Member benefits include:

  • Pitt Legacy Fund display medallion (with initial gift only) 
  • Invitation to Pitt Legacy Fund fall and spring family picnics (held in conjunction with a Saturday athletic event)
  • Recognition in PSU publications as a Pitt Legacy Fund donor
  • $25 voucher to be used at Gorilla Gala silent auction
