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.
