Purdue Day of Giving

On April 27, 2016, the entire Purdue community will come together for the Purdue Day of Giving to grant opportunities that will transform students' lives.

Purdue Day of Giving is an online-based fund-raising event that encourages friends and alumni to come together, support their favorite unit and help it win prizes in matching funds.

On the Purdue Day of Giving, participate in exciting matching challenges that make your gift go even further.

How do I make a gift?

More information about the 2016 Day of Giving is forthcoming.

For now, further information can be obtained from the Purdue Day of Giving web site.

Thank you very much!
