In addition to University support, Visual Arts Committee Projects are supported by donations from the public. Donations, large or small, can be used to fund small projects such as purchasing and framing art for the Poster Exchange to large Art in the Classroom installations.
Art in the Classroom donors are invited to participate in jury selections of work they help to fund. The University expresses its appreciation of such sponsorship both through University Press Releases as well as a plaque bearing the names of both donor and artist mounted alongside the work. (Donors can also choose to make donations anonymously.) If you are interested in supporting the Visual Arts at Purdue University, please contact

Making Donations via Payroll Deduction
Many people working at the University use the Payroll Deduction form to make donating easy and automatic. Taking advantage of this system allows you to spread the amount you wish to donate throughout the year. To activate, fill out and submit a form to the University Development Office with instructions that your gift should be directed to the Art In The Classroom or the Visual Arts Lending Collection.
Making Donations Online
Purdue has made it even easier to give. You can now donate quickly and securely at http://www.purdue.edu/udo/pages/how_to/egift.html . Be sure to specify that you want it directed towards Art In the Classroon or to the Visual Arts Lending Collection.
