GOLD Giving

Pitzer College

Cecilia Ribakoff, Volunteer Services Coordinator for L.A. Family Housing, collaborated with Pitzer 2006 art graduates Katie Ryan and Daniel Ingroff on a mural project in the Boyle Heights neighborhood in East Los Angeles.

As a graduate of the last decade, please join others in showing your pride for Pitzer College with a contribution, of any size, to the Alumni Fund. While you were at Pitzer, these dollars had a direct impact on your experience by providing the necessary funds for technology, faculty support, scholarships, student organizations, guest lecturers, campus beautification and so much more!

Participation Makes a Difference!

Foundations, corporations and other donors use alumni giving as a measure of satisfaction with the College. Alumni support is a vote of confidence in the Pitzer experience. It also affects Pitzer's standing in the U.S. News & World Report's annual college rankings. Rankings can increase the College’s notoriety and the value of your degree.

Your annual gift has a significant impact on the future of Pitzer College. Pitzer’s Alumni participation rate in 2007-2008 year was 26% (an 11% drop since 2004-2005). In response, the Alumni Board has instituted an “Alumni Participation Challenge” to re-engage 500 lapsed and future alumni donors to increase the participation rate to 30%. Please consider the data below.

The Alumni Fund is one of the most crucial components of the Annual Fund. In addition to alumni contributions, the Annual Fund is supported by parents, staff & faculty, trustees, foundations & corporations, and friends of the College.
