About Brackenridge Circle

In 1787 Pitt founder, Hugh Henry Brackenridge, secured state endowments for the establishment of The Pittsburgh Academy. His vision for a great seat of learning west of the Alleghenies would eventually become the University of Pittsburgh. 

The Brackenridge Circle Recognition Celebration honors the new members of the Brackenridge Circle, a giving society established in 2010 and comprised of donors whose exceptional vision has inspired them to make planned gifts of $1 million or more toward the continued progress and success of the University of Pittsburgh.
