Give Today


Cornerstone Giving Initiative

Shadyside Campus is one of Pittsburgh’s most beautiful, memorable, and historic locations. To better support our beloved campus and undergraduate growth, President Phillips has launched The Cornerstone Giving Initiative, which focuses on four giving areas: building renewal, athletics and recreation, the campus arboretum, and historic preservation. Your support of Cornerstone ensures we can make the words of our beloved alma mater as true today as they were when written: “Like cornerstones of temples, polished and gleaming, strong, and secure. We pledge our lives to be mansions of beauty to endure.”

Support Expendable Scholarships

Support a student through their four years at Chatham by creating a named, expendable scholarship. Expendable scholarships provide an invaluable source of immediate financial support for our students. You’ll receive an update annually on the student who benefitted from your generosity. An annual commitment of $2,500 a year for four years creates a named expendable scholarship and  supports one student through the entirety of their education. Set up a recurring annual scholarship payment using our secure online giving form or contact Dana DePasquale at 412-365-1517 or
