The Purdue Alumni Association offers a wealth of opportunities to get involved and reconnect with your university and fellow alumni, no matter what you’re interested in or where you live. Here are a few ways that you can help shape Purdue’s future through volunteering your time or making a contribution.
Donations are critical to your Purdue Alumni Association. Your support provides important services and programs to the university, as well as the community at large. Unrestricted gifts go toward Homecoming, networking and career resources, and basketball events, as well as student programs and more. You can make gifts in your own name, or as a tribute or honor to someone else.

Donating to these accounts insures that you receive recognition in the Purdue University gift reporting system, and these gifts are eligible for tax deductions. Purdue’s Division of Financial aid selects scholarship recipients based on written criteria provided by the local club.
