Together, We Are Purdue

Ever True: The Campaign for Purdue University is an invitation to the Purdue family to join together, through private giving and personal involvement, to boldly advance our University as a national and global leader that continues to move the world forward.

With a goal of $2.019 billion, Ever True is the largest fundraising effort in Purdue history. The campaign spans July 1, 2012, through June 30, 2019, concluding in the University’s 150th anniversary year.

This campaign will propel the Purdue Moves initiatives—Affordability & Accessibility, STEM Leadership, World-Changing Research, and Transformative Education—and reinforce the University’s overarching commitment to keep a rigorous college education within students’ financial reach.

“To protect and extend that noble, land-grant assignment; to do so while constantly improving the rates at which our students of all kinds successfully capitalize on their Purdue opportunity; to do so while building our reputation for excellence in teaching, in research, and in the effective transmission to society of the fruits of that research; here is a mission for which we can all be grateful to play a part.”

— President Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr.
