Your gift of $5.00 or more helps us continue to make the Governor's School free for all Pennsylvania students. Without your help, the program would cost students $6,500 to attend.

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.
