Pennsylvania Governor's School for Global & International Studies needs YOUR support!
DONATE to the Gov School on Pitt's Day of Giving!

Each year, Pitt students, faculty, alumni, community members and benefactors of the University of Pittsburgh, who have supported our four-week residence on their campus each year, come together to celebrate the Pitt Day of Giving. This 24-hour online and on-campus fundraising event is an opportunity to continue the 25-year legacy of the Governor's School for Global & International Studies.

We are proud and steadfast in our commitment to present high-school sophomores and juniors with global challenges in business, politics, and fields that inspire their intellectual curiosity. From our top-notch instruction and critical thinking activities to our weekend excursions and exploration of our beloved Pittsburgh, we pride ourselves on developing educationally-relevant programming in a fun, immersive way that prepares students beyond their time in high school.

This year, a first in Gov School history, students will be required to pay the entirety of the $4,000 tuition due to cuts made in the Governor's budget. We count on you to help us in continuing to provide our deserving students with the same opportunities afforded to you by donating today--with only a minimum of $5, your generous donation goes a long way in supporting our 25th year!

Every amount counts and helps us to bring additional resources, expertise and globally-focused education to future Gov School alumni like YOU!
$5 The cost to transport a student.

$15 The cost associated with an excursion.

$20 The cost of course materials.

$50 the cost per day to house a feed a student

ATTENTION GOVERNOR'S SCHOOL FOR GLOBAL AND INTERNATIONAL STUDIES ALUMNI!
Have you ever thought about giving back to the program? Now is your chance to make a donation that will make an impact! For the 2nd annual Pitt Day of Giving, every donation counts as we compete with units across campus for additional funds, scholarship money, and program support.

Consider giving based on what year you were in the program. Did you attend in 2007, then consider giving $11. Were you one of the original group from 1984 then consider giving $34 Every little bit helps! The State of Pennsylvania no longer supports this program so we rely on our alumni and the University of Pittsburgh for support.

We have just 24 hours to show the strength of our numbers! Click here to donate http://www.giveto.pitt.edu/node/1631

Thank you, kindly, for all your support.
