Dear Aero/Astro Alumni and Friends:
Thank you for visiting the development office website for the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics here at Purdue University. Our role is to assist the School in acquiring resources to help fund the School's top priorities.
The School relies on and needs private support from alumni, friends, and corporations. With Purdue being a state institution, only 17% of the University's budget comes from state appropriations. As you can see, your gifts really make a difference.
Thank you once again for visiting our site. Next time you visit campus, please let us know. If you have not seen our new home, Armstrong Hall, it is a must see and has opened more educational opportunities than ever before. Feel free to contact me at (765) 494-9124 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hail Purdue!Rita Baines
Director of Development
