The purpose of dues sharing funds is to help clubs engage as many alumni as possible, thereby assisting Purdue Alumni in meeting its mission of being the gateway for loyal alumni to build relationships with each other and Purdue University.
Purdue Alumni will make these funds available each year to clubs who meet specific core values. Clubs satisfying these values will earn Gold status, and will be eligible to receive $2.50 for each Purdue Alumni member residing in the club's geographic region.
The funds can be used to support a qualifying club event. A qualifying club event is defined as an activity or program which is promoted to all alumni or all Purdue Alumni members in the club's geographic region.
The funds may be used to pay for the net cost of a qualifying club event. The net cost of a qualifying club event is defined as fees collected from attendees less qualified expenses (defined below) incurred to organize and conduct the event.
