The Campus Campaign for faculty, staff, and students is part of Ever True: The Campaign for Purdue University.

As Boilermakers, we take a great deal of pride in Purdue University—its pioneering tradition, its heart as a land-grant institution, and its progress in moving the world forward. Here on campus, our own contributions every day as faculty and staff support Purdue’s indispensable teaching, research, and outreach mission, and our academic preparation as students is laying the foundation for remarkable accomplishment in the future.

Ever True: Campus Campaign for faculty, staff, and students is your opportunity to support what you love most about Purdue—to extend your Purdue pride—by advancing the University financially as well as through what you give in your time and talents.

Whatever the amount, your gift matters. You can contribute to any area you like: an academic unit, a special program or scholarship for students, or staff professional development funds. Together, we will Place Students First, Build on Our Strengths, and Champion Research and Innovation.

Join the Purdue Proud faculty, staff, and students—retirees as well—who have already made gifts through Ever True. Give now, and see for yourself the impact your generosity makes!
