We need your help.
The school was founded in 1948 by a gift from the A.W. Mellon Education and Charitable Trust to address the needs of industrial Pittsburgh. It has been through the generosity of the foundation community and people like you who have built upon Pitt Public Health's early role in environmental and occupational health to create this world renowned institution. Throughout our 60 year history, Pitt Public Health alumni have carried our reputation with them as they lead public health and healthcare endeavors in all 50 states. Pitt Public Health scientists have expanded the school's research to address all major public health concerns and have translated important findings into groundbreaking public health advances.

Your support is critical to advancing this proud legacy. $87 million needs to be raised to provide classroom and lab facilities essential to the growth of Pitt Public Health. Over 80% of this goal, $72 million, has already been contributed by the University of Pittsburgh and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, underscoring the importance of Pitt Public Health to the University and to Pennsylvania residents.
We are asking you, the friends of Pitt Public Health who care about quality public health, to contribute the remaining $15 million.
