Unless using a special font, the macro\boldsymbol from amsbsy package should do.

(Beware, that math typesetting will make the bookmarks weird if used unless \texorpdfstring with appropiate workaround is applied)




\section{Not bold $\pi$}

\section{Bold $\boldsymbol{\pi}$}

\section{Bold \texorpdfstring{$\boldsymbol{\pi}$}{\textpi}}
