TAG (Thank-A-Giver) Day

Pitt TAG Day

Did you know that tuition and fees account for approximately 30% of the University’s operating budget? The remaining comes from other sources including individual donations.

November 2nd marked the point in the academic year when tuition stops paying for a student’s education and support from individual donors takes over. For the remainder of the year, gifts to the University help to make a Pitt education possible. To say THANKS, we recognized their generosity by celebrating our first annual Thank-A-Giver (TAG) Day on November 2, 2016.

TAG Day was a campus-wide event that engaged and educated the Pitt community about the importance of paying it forward. The event was hosted by Project Paw Print, a student philanthropy group. Tags around campus represented the tangible impact our donors have on the University.

On November 2, individuals shared a selfie with one of the gold tags on campus on social media using #PittTAGDay. Tags were be centered around the lower level of the Cathedral of Learning, the William Pitt Union, the Petersen Events Center, and the Hillman Library. All participants were then eligible to win one of many great prizes, from Pitt swag to an iPad.
