The John Purdue Club is responsible for raising the funds necessary to cover the tuition, room and board, books and academic support costs of Purdue’s more than 500 student-athletes. Your gift is an investment in our student-athletes and the future of Purdue Athletics. Anyone interested in the future of Boilermaker Athletics may join the John Purdue Club. Many of our donors attended Purdue, but you don’t need to be a Purdue graduate or letterwinner to show your support. Approximately 25 percent of John Purdue Club members are not Purdue alumni.
Gifts to the John Purdue Club support scholarships and academic support for Purdue’s student-athletes and improvement to our athletic facilities. Every gift, no matter the amount, brings us closer to meeting the total scholarship costs for dedicated Boilermaker student-athletes which have escalated to more than $12.5 million dollars per year.
The impact of your gift reaches beyond the playing field. For Purdue’s student-athletes, an education at this prestigious university – made possible only through John Purdue Club contributions – provides the opportunity to prosper beyond athletics.
