Purdue Athletics Next Moves Announced to Guide Fundraising Direction for 2022-23 Year

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Monday, Aug. 22) – It was a record year for the John Purdue Club in 2021-22, with an all-time best $83 million raised in pledged commitments and cash donations in support of Purdue Athletics. That level of generosity and ambition has positioned the Boilermakers to energetically launch into the 2022-23 season amid the ever-changing landscape of college athletics.
In a newly released letter to supporters titled “Purdue Athletics Next Moves,” fundraising objectives have been set for the John Purdue Club (JPC) annual scholarship and academic support fund, Phase 2 of the Ross-Ade Stadium renovations and other projects and endowments related to all 18 Boilermaker sport programs.
An exciting level of alignment and coordination for this endeavor has occurred, as Purdue Athletics and the JPC have collaborated with the Purdue for Life Foundation to pinpoint goals that will best help Purdue Athletics stand out among the Big Ten Conference and at the national level.
Additionally, full endorsement has been given to the external efforts of the Boilermaker Alliance, an entity formed by a passionate grouping of Purdue alumni to provide an elite presence in the era of Name, Image and Likeness (NIL) for Boilermaker student-athletes.
JPC members, season ticket holders, fans and friends of the Boilermakers can learn within the full letter how these objectives will enhance the Purdue student-athlete experience and bolster ongoing efforts by coaches and department staff. Click here to begin reading.
Boilermaker fans are encouraged to contact their Boilermaker Athletics Representative (BAR) or the John Purdue Club directly (765-494-2582) with any questions about how support can be offered.
