One Week One Pitzer

One Week. One Pitzer. is our annual (award-winning!) week of philanthropy and giving! Because we are unable to gather physically, this year we are emphasizing “One Pitzer” to acknowledge both the strain of time spent apart and celebrate the Pitzer connections we have maintained and made during these trying times.

The number “one” can mean solitary, and a lot of this year has been spent in separation. “One” is also a symbol of unity. We have learned together, grieved together, and rallied together. We look forward to reconvening on campus soon, but for now, remember that we are always, One Pitzer. 

How Can I Make A Difference?

Through this pandemic, we have sought to create a Pitzer that is enriching and accessible for all. Whether you are a current student, a parent, or an alumna from the pioneering class of 1968, we hope you have had the opportunity to connect with us and other members of the Pitzer community during the past year.

The Pitzer College Board of Trustees is offering a challenge this week:
  • If 200 people make a gift to Pitzer during One Week. One Pitzer., the Board will give an additional $50,000 to Pitzer College.
  • If we surpass 200 donors and reach 400 donors, the Board will give an additional $50,000, for a total of $100,000! 
To support our continuous efforts to create meaningful engagement with Pitzer College, please make a gift today!
