Club Email and Event Forms

The Purdue for Life Foundation now manages club emails centrally so that our combined email efforts will be more effective: more targeted and streamlined, with increased visibility for club events and messages, and additional support for you.

Clubs that wish to mail postcards to promote an event must order them as part of the pre-event information form. The club is responsible for the cost of printing and postage. Clubs will not be charged for the association’s design services. Please provide eight weeks’ notice to allow for production and mailing.
