Founders' Society

The Pittsburgh Academy charter from 1787The Founders' Society ($1,787 to $2,499) recalls that the University of Pittsburgh, originally named the Pittsburgh Academy, was founded in 1787 by Hugh Henry Brackenridge in a log cabin on what was then the edge of the American frontier. The first page of "An Act for the establishment of an Academy or public school in the Town of Pittsburgh" from February 28, 1787, is pictured at right.

Membership in the Founders' Society honors those who have given $1,787 to $2,499 in a fiscal year.
