Show your support of Pitzer College by giving on 11/27!
National Giving Tuesday is a campaign to create a national date of giving at the start of the holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations.
The Pitzer College Giving Tuesday Campaign provides alumni, parentsand friends of the College with the opportunity to maximize their philanthropic impact for our students and faculty. A group of generous donors will match all donations to Pitzer on Tuesday, November 27, dollar for dollar. What an excellent way to strengthen the impact of gifts you may already be making!

Student Access – Annual Fund donations help cover the $9,000 gap between the cost of tuition ($57,000) and the real cost of education ($68,000) for Pitzer Students. Your contribution also positively impacts Pitzer's ability to offer financial aid to students with demonstrated need. In 2011-2012, approximately 46 percent of our students received an average financial aid package of $39,000.
Faculty Excellence – The student/faculty ratio is currently 11:1 – one of the lowest ratios in the country. Pitzer is a small, close-knit community where students and faculty develop peer-to-peer relationships outside the classroom that continue well beyond the students' time on campus. Your support makes this valuable experience possible.
Student Excellence Programs – Your support enhances programs throughout the campus, such as the Community Engagement Center (CEC) and International Programs. Nearly 80 percent of Pitzer students study abroad and are immersed in cultures that broaden and deepen their understanding of real-world issues. Locally, the CEC provides students with hundreds of opportunities to volunteer in neighborhood communities through organizational partnerships and affiliates. These and other experiences allow our students to apply their classroom learning in a real-world context.
