West-coast Wildfires

As wildfires devastate the West Coast, Pitt and its students, faculty and staff stand ready to help victims however they can.

Make a Donation

There are very easy ways to help others during disasters and emergencies. Visit the websites of these organizations to see how you can have a positive impact.


Donate Blood

If blood is not available when needed, hospitals cannot respond to severe injuries, catastrophic accidents, and premature babies who can’t survive without immediate transfusions. 

Register online to donate blood or call 866-366-6771.

Staff and Faculty Support

From 24/7 crisis assistance to online resources, Pitt offers a broad range of services to help and support staff and faculty members and their household members during emergencies—as well as during less stressful times.
