FOR MAKING PURDUE DAY OF GIVING
CHAMPIONING THE CAUSE
On April 30, 2014, University alums, friends, faculty, and staff
joined together from all over the world to celebrate the inaugural
Purdue Day of Giving, an online-based fundraising event.
Participants showed their loyalty to the University through everything from monetary support to volunteering to help with the day’s
specific events. Individual units took part in a friendly competition
to win matching incentives from the University for specific
challenges. The day’s gifts to the University totaled $7.5 million.
Thanks to alums and friends, the College of Engineering raised
$2.5 million during the event and won three leaderboard
challenges: Most International Gifts, Largest Single Donation,
and Most Unique Photo with Hashtag. To see the day’s wrap-up,
The University plans to make Day of Giving an annual event, with
the next one set for April 29, 2015.
