Pitt State Gorillas
Pitt State Athletic Fund

Silverback Fund

Established in 2017, this fund is designed to provide specific opportunities for gifts restricted to student-athlete scholarships. The goal for this program is to annually secure gifts that will continue to build scholarship budgets each year to operate at the maximum amount permitted in accordance with NCAA legislation. Once those levels are attained, funds from other revenue sources can be moved from scholarship budgets to assist with operational needs. The goal, over time, is to fund a large majority of annual scholarship expenses with this fund, so that other sources of revenue can be used to meet other needs.
