Join us in honoring our past, celebrating our present and embracing the promise of our future by supporting the Pitzer Fund 

this Founders Day.


Through the guidance of Pitzer’s first president, John W. Atherton, Pitzer College opened its doors for the first time on February 21, 1963. This year help us celebrate Pitzer’s founding and 60th Anniversary with a gift to the Pitzer Fund to help open doors for our students.

“In poetry the writer is trying to put together a complicated mechanism to produce some kind of distinct, unified impression. Right now, concerned with starting a completely new college, I am doing much the same thing.”

- John W. Atherton, 1963

This year’s inaugural Founders Day campaign is an opportunity to put into action the core values established by Pitzer’s founding members. Your gift will help enable programs that support social responsibility, intercultural understanding, interdisciplinary learning, student engagement, and environmental sustainability. 

We’ve set a goal to raise $63,000 before the campaign ends on February 28, 2023. Will you help us reach our goal?
