Lyles School of Civil Engineering - Giant leaps in giving
A big thank you to everyone who participated in the 2019 Purdue Day of Giving!
In just 24 hours, the Lyles School of Civil Engineering received 212 gifts totaling more than $1.15 million. Overall, Purdue University raised more than $41.6 million — a record for the daylong fundraising event. In fact, the Purdue Day of Giving has set new single-day fundraising records every year since its inception in 2014, leading to $146.9 million in total gifts.
Giving to Purdue Civil Engineering directly influences and improves the experience and quality of education for our students. We deeply respect and appreciate those who give to the School. We ensure that gifts are used in the best possible ways to prepare the Purdue civil engineers of tomorrow.
We would also like to thank all the students, faculty and staff who helped make the day even more special with their on-campus participation. We held events in Hampton Hall and on the front lawn, where hundreds of guests stopped by, joined in our games, and learned about our school and student activities.
Thank you again, everyone - and join us for the next Purdue Day of Giving on April 29!
