United Way


The University of Pittsburgh is entering its 20th campaign for the newly titled United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania!

In that time, the Pitt community has raised a staggering $7,000,000+ for the needs of our local community. That money helped families thrive when they struggled to make ends meet, provided mentors and academic support for at risk children and youth, and helped pave the road to financial independence for people with disabilities and senior citizens.

Thanks to the convenient payroll deduction option, donating is easy!  You can allocate your donation anywhere you would like, including making a donation directly to Pitt Public Health.  Simply use organization number 971599 on your enrollment form.  You can make your donation online by logging into and selecting the “Donate to United Way” button on the right side of the page or by downloading the pledge form and  giving it to your office representative or the Pitt Public Health Dean’s Office.
