Annual donors understand that tuition and state funding provide only part of the resources our University relies on to take the next giant leap. Griffin Society status is achieved by alumni, current students, and friends who have made annual gifts to Purdue for at least three consecutive years. We celebrate their loyalty and generosity through special milestone recognition at various levels—from those who are just beginning their lifetime commitment to annual giving to those who have given for upwards of 20 years. You may direct your gift in whatever way is most meaningful to you. Every gift—no matter the size—is important, and every dollar makes a difference.

Loyal support. Big impact.

The griffin, which is featured on the Purdue University seal, is a symbol of strength. The impact created by the more than 40,000 alumni and friends around the world who claim Griffin Society status is powerful. 41,838 griffin society donors gave 61,417967 dollars last year to 3,176 areas across campus Loyal members ensure this level of support year after year. The average loyal donor has been giving for 12 consecutive years—impacting the lives of countless students and shaping the future of the University.
