The University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown has received a donation of $12 million, the largest gift in the school’s 81-year history. Established through the generosity of an alumnus who wished to remain anonymous, the estate gift carries on a Commuter Scholarship that was established at Pitt-Johnstown in 2000. It is estimated that the gift will provide support for approximately 40 students annually.
This estate gift sends a valuable message about the importance of alumni support. Through this gift, our loyal alumnus has acted in a way that leaves a permanent legacy and sets an example for others to follow. A gift of this magnitude will enable deserving students to pursue an intellectually stimulating education and position themselves for rewarding careers and meaningful lives. There are no words eloquent enough to express our gratitude.
