Make Your Mark
Support the College


It’s coming, but it will only be here for 24 hours next week!  There will be just one day to help Purdue Veterinary Medicine meet the challenge when the university hosts its annual Purdue Day of Giving September 9. Click here to watch a video and learn more about the Purdue Day of Giving.

Spread the word to friends and family and get fired up to help win bonus funds for our college during 30+ hourly and full-day challenges! Mark your calendar on September 9 for the hours when you can make the biggest impact with these special opportunities:

9:00 a.m. – Unit with the most gifts from faculty and staff wins $2,500!

4:00 p.m. – Unit whose random faculty/staff gift is chosen wins $1,000!

4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. – Give in honor of our Canine Educators during our virtual Love-A-Lab giving hours! In the past, these lovable dogs helped us raise money on the Purdue Day of Giving. This year, even though it is not possible to spend time with them in person because of the pandemic, you can show your appreciation for their help in educating our students by donating online to your favorite college or Purdue University Veterinary Hospital program.

7:00 p.m. – Post your most creative photo of your pet in Purdue gear on Twitter or Instagram. Include #PurdueDayofGiving and #PurdueVetMed.  The unit with the best photo wins $1,500!

Also, follow our social media pages for updates and watch our progress on the leaderboards on September 9!  And this year, you can meet a special challenge by giving to the Leave A Print campaign and helping our college meet the goal for the new hospital facilities.  Click here to learn more and help out!
