Purdue Day of Giving of 2015 set an impressive record in higher education fundraising campaigns. The numbers are clear: in 24 hours over 9500 donors contributed more than $13.5 million to Purdue University. The number of countries represented was also record-breaking, rising from the 15 countries that participated in 2014, to 37 last year. Surely enough, Colombia played a significant role in it, with more than 40 donors listed from both students and alumni.
The third annual Purdue Day of Giving will take place on the 27th of April of 2016. We hope to break new records this year, with great contributions from our Colombian boilermakers and friends. Let’s make our school feel what Colombian bigheartedness is all about!
