Help Purdue Veterinary Medicine Meet the Challenge on the Purdue Day of Giving
“Each year, we are amazed at the generosity and support of the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine family on Purdue Day of Giving,” says Amanda Dunkle, director of development operations and donor stewardship, as she talks about plans for this year’s event September 9. Last year, the number of gifts received by the college during the annual 24-hour fundraising event was TWICE that of the year before! “That positioned the college in the Top Ten for participation across campus, earning additional bonus funds,” Amanda says, recounting with enthusiasm the successful outcome in 2019. “The outpouring of energy from others who took the time to participate in hourly challenges, take photos, and spread the word made an impact on our overall success as well.”
This year has been quite a challenge, which means the generosity of PVM’s family and friends is more important than ever. “During the last six years, the Purdue Day of Giving has resulted in $3,028,338 in gifts to enhance College of Veterinary Medicine academic programs, student scholarships, hospital services, life-changing research, and so much more!”
This year, participants have the special opportunity to significantly impact the future of veterinary medicine by giving to the Leave A Print campaign to help build new state-of-the-art veterinary hospital facilities. “Any gift will make a difference to help our faculty, staff, and students continue the persistent pursuit of excellence in veterinary education and service to animals and humans,” Amanda says.
