Did you know: Gifts as small as $5 make a big difference today on . Each unique donor counts and moves the Johnson Institute for Responsible Leadership and up the leader board!

Our country and our world need ethical, empathetic leaders now more than ever, and none of our student and community-centered programs would be possible without the support of partners like you. The best part is this – no donation is too small. On Pitt Day of Giving, schools compete for “bonus funds” from the University, which are awarded based on number of individual donors, not total amount raised. Even a $5 gift can help us compete for those funds. Three years ago, GSPIA won $15,000 in bonus funds, which supported 7 domestic internships, 7 international internships and 4 students attending conferences to present their research.

Together, we can make a difference!
