Pitt Make A Difference Day 2017


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 10th annual Pitt Make A Difference Day will be held on Saturday, October 21, 2017, 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 around the country?

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.

What types of service activities are being offered?

Alumni volunteers select the service activity for their region, and they can vary from public park cleanups to volunteering at a local food bank. Interested participants can contact the listed host to learn of the exact activity occurring in their region. See below for a current listing of participating regions. Be sure to check back regularly for last minute additions.

Unable to serve, but want to contribute?

If you are unable to serve, please consider supporting the student-focused projects at one of the five Pitt campuses by donating at http://engage.pitt.edu/pmadd. Your financial contributions support students in their service and provide a great experience for the communities that welcome us during PMADD. In celebration of 10 years of service, we are striving to raise $10,000. A $10 donation supports the basic costs of transportation, safety T-shirts, lunch, and project supplies for one volunteer.
