About the Purdue for Life Foundation

Established in March 2020, the Purdue for Life Foundation encompasses the Purdue Alumni Association; the University Development Office, which includes President’s Council and the John Purdue Club; and alumni lifetime learning programs.

Our mission: to deepen alumni ties to the University and to drive and coordinate all alumni-related activities across the Purdue family’s post-graduation lives, while also working with alumni and friends to garner support for the institution.
