President’s Council

Donors who contribute $1,000 or more annually to any Purdue school, college, program, department, or campus initiative automatically become members of the President’s Council family. You become a lifetime member of President’s Council when giving reaches at least $25,000 through cash gifts or planned giving in addition to your annual commitment to leadership giving. Thank you for helping Purdue take its next giant leap.
