Pitt Make A Difference Day

What is PMADD?

Pitt Make A Difference Day (PMADD) is the University’s largest day of service, engaging over 4,000 students, alumni, staff, and faculty! PMADD is an opportunity for alumni to show their Pitt spirit and serve their communities across the world.

The 11th annual Pitt Make A Difference Day will be held on Saturday, October 20, 2018, and this year, the Pitt Alumni Association will be teaming up with PittServes, the University’s community service engagement office, to facilitate a variety of civic engagement projects worldwide to demonstrate how the Pitt community can make a difference wherever they are!


Who hosts the service activities?

Pitt alumni—especially members of the Pitt Clubs, which are located in cities throughout the U.S. and across the globe—volunteer to coordinate and lead the ‘Make A Difference Day’ service activities.
