LEADERBOARDS & CHALLENGES

Purdue Day of Giving made gifts go further!

Donating to Purdue University on Purdue Day of Giving helped generous donations go even further through additional bonus funds that were awarded to the units with most money raised or highest number of participation.

In addition, we also awarded bonus funds in a series of hourly challenges ranging from most donations in an hour to the creative use of social media content and the Purdue Day of Giving message. See below for the full challenge list.

DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT

Every gift to the President’s Student Affordability and Accessibility Fund (up to $25,000) of the first $500,000 raised was matched 1:1 by a generous Boilermaker. Gifts were credited to the President’s Student Affordability and Accessibility Fund and allocated to Indiana students, who demonstrated certain levels of financial need, in the degree-granting unit the donor selected.
