Incorporating a planned gift for Purdue Athletics, as one of your philanthropic priorities, will allow you to make a more substantial gift than you probably thought was possible. It’s never too early to think about creating a lasting impact for our student-athletes.
Setting up a planned gift now allows you to enjoy benefits and security during your lifetime, and provides you with the satisfaction of knowing your planned gift will make a big difference at Purdue.
A planned gift is simply a contribution that is arranged in the present and allocated in the future. Planned gifts can take the form of bequests, trusts, life insurance policies and beneficiary designations of retirement accounts.
With a planned gift, you can provide for your loved ones, receive tax benefits and generate income while creating a brighter future for student-athletes by establishing a lasting legacy within Purdue Athletics.
Across our teams, we provide 360+ scholarships for our student-athletes. By investing in scholarships through a planned gift, you will help ensure that student-athletes are recruited based on their skill level and alignment with the Purdue tradition. As a result, your gift will significantly enhance the sustainability of our program, while helping shape the next generation of Boilermaker student-athletes.
Purdue Athletics is committed to the total development of each of its student-athletes. A key component in their development is leadership. The John R. Wooden Leadership Institute provides our student-athletes the necessary resources to grow and develop into tomorrow’s leaders. Purdue student-athletes attend classes and seminars as they focus on each of the strategic building blocks that Coach Wooden deemed valuable.
When you make a gift designated to a specific sport, you are pledging your support to our coaches and their vision for how to successfully elevate Purdue Athletics to a new level of excellence. Whether it is invested in team travel throughout the season, national or international competition opportunities, or sophisticated training equipment, your gift will directly impact the team you are passionate about.
