Systems and Operations


The University pf Pittsburgh appreciates the generosity of alumni and friends. The primary responsibility for Systems is to record and promptly acknowledge all pledges and gifts to the University. All funds received are credited to the correct account and promptly deposited; gifts are accepted and administered in a manner which does not jeopardize the University's status as a tax-exempt educational institution.

Faculty gifts and commitments should be forwarded to the Director of Development for their school. The Director of Development will then forward the gifts/commitments to the Office of Institutional Advancement for processing.

Stewardship Services

Stewardship Services is responsible for overseeing several recognition programs, including the acknowledgment system, the Honor Roll of Donors, volunteer recognition, and donor relations. Stewardship also provides assistance to donors in an effort to build lifetime relationships with the University, foster positive attitudes toward support of the institution, and involve donors in a more personal manner.
