Make Your Mark
Support the College


Just a week away from the end of the Purdue United Way Campaign, the College of Veterinary Medicine is within a few percentage points of its goal of raising $18,080 for local agencies that serve the Greater Lafayette Community.  So far more than $16,500 has been raised, which is 91% of the goal, with still a few days left for PVM faculty and staff to make their pledges.

“We need everyone’s help in reaching the goal for PVM,” said Dean Willie Reed. “The College of Veterinary Medicine has always been generous in helping the University reach the Purdue United Way Campaign goal.  Thank you for the incredible support thus far! I know that I can count on the PVM family to be a model within the University of strong support for the United Way agencies that do so much to help our Greater Lafayette Community.”

If you haven’t contributed already, please consider donating to the campaign by November 17.  Donations/pledges can be made at www.purdue.edu/unitedway.  And with ePledge, it’s easier than ever to donate by simply following these three steps:

  • Use your Purdue career account ID and password to login to ePledge
  • Once logged in, you will see a welcome message from Purdue United Way
  • Follow the steps to make your pledge by payroll deduction, credit card, check, bill me, stock/securities or select not to participate this year

University-wide, the Purdue campaign has raised more than $480,300 toward the goal of $725,000.  Purdue United Way Director Megan Eberly reminds Purdue employees that pledges are not automatically renewed from year to year, so they need to log on to the Purdue United Way website to renew their pledges for this year.

Donors can make an unrestricted gift to the United Way of Greater Lafayette or can choose a specific United Way agency. Gifts can be made through payroll deduction or as a one-time donation. For credit card transactions, the United Way of Greater Lafayette contracts with CyberSource, a trusted name in e-commerce meeting industry security standards.

If a paper pledge card is preferred, you may contact Megan Eberly at meberly@purdue.edu or call 317-695-5740.

The Purdue United Way campaign will wrap up at the United Way of Greater Lafayette’s campaign victory celebration November 18 at the West Lafayette Golf and Country Club, and members of the campus community are invited to attend the celebration.  Click here to donate and learn more about the Purdue United Way Campaign.  Steve Abel, associate provost for engagement, is this year’s campaign chair.

Thank you for your continued support!  We have one life.  Living better means living United!
