WHAT IS PRATT GIVING DAY?

March 22nd is Pratt’s second annual Giving Day! We’re so excited to continue this tradition of joining together as a Pratt community. For just 24 hours, we rally to support the next generation of changemakers!

WHY SHOULD YOU SUPPORT PRATT STUDENTS?

Our Pratt students are at the forefront of change. You are contributing to Pratt's legacy of providing the highest quality creative education that can impact the way we live, work and play. 

WHAT WILL YOUR IMPACT BE?

With a gift to Pratt, you help ensure exceptionally talented and deserving students have the opportunity to follow their dreams through Pratt education. You can designate your gift to an area that is most meaningful to you! Every gift counts.

As a thank you, we'll send all donors a limited edition Pratt magnet.

Our gift to you!
