Endowed Funds

Every endowed fund at Pitzer is a lasting gift to present and future generations. The reliable and ongoing support they provide helps position Pitzer as one of the preeminent liberal arts colleges in the nation and world. Each fund addresses a key area of need at Pitzer and makes a critical difference for the long-term health and growth of the College and the individuals at the heart of it.

Endowed gifts allow Pitzer to operate with assured financial security and give donors the personal satisfaction of knowing they have made a permanent and lasting contribution to a world-class institution, the students we serve and the faculty who teach and inspire them.

We are profoundly grateful to the alumni, parents, trustees, foundations and other friends of the College who have established the following endowed funds at Pitzer that enable us to offer unique and exceptional opportunities to our students and faculty in perpetuity.
