Those of us involved in fundraising for the College of Agriculture find a great deal of satisfaction in helping donors connect their personal values with charitable giving opportunities at Purdue. For some, this may take the form of a named endowment that provides significant name recognition, while others prefer anonymous, unrestricted contributions. In either case, we are committed to helping donors accomplish their goals and celebrating those gifts in ways that are meaningful to them.
