Purdue Day of Giving

Wednesday, April 30, 2014 (All day) to Thursday, May 1, 2014 (All day)

The first-ever Purdue Day of Giving is a 24-hour online fundraising event designed to boost visibility and giving for all of Purdue University. Nearly 40 campus units, including the College of Technology, will be involved in promoting Purdue during this event - granting opportunity, launching dreams, and achieving greatness while promoting an affordable and accessible Purdue. Save the date and be one of the first to share in the excitement and support for your alma mater!

With your help, we can tell all students with great promise and great ideas:  "opportunity granted."
