Our Opportunity

We have a tremendous opportunity to position Pitt Football among the most elite programs in the country. As a member of the ACC, the roadmap to a College Football Playoff berth is clear and a 10th National Championship is attainable.

Our Challenge

Realizing our vision requires dynamic leadership, a specific plan and increased investment in the vision.

Prior to 2015, we had not tallied more than eight wins in a single season since 2009. We also endured three head coaching changes during that span.

In order to realize ACC and National Championships at Pitt, continuity of leadership and a focused investment in our program are vital.

Your Investment

Private support will allow Pitt Athletics to build and sustain a top tier football program. Our future success depends greatly on philanthropic leaders investing in our top priorities.

Multi-Year Pledges

Multi-year pledges are encouraged and greatly appreciated. Pledges allow our football program to properly plan for future investments.
