PVM Receives Bonus Funds for Successful Participation in Record Purdue Day of Giving
Purdue University completed its 8th annual Purdue Day of Giving on Wednesday (April 28) and experienced an outpouring of support like never before. The results of this thrilling fundraising event surpassed all previous years, with $52,489,367 received through 25,219 gifts in only 24 hours! What an amazing day for Boilermakers!
The College of Veterinary Medicine ended the day with $728,352 in generous donations provided through 254 gifts. Purdue granted the college an additional $3,402 in bonus funds for ranking 13th on the donation leaderboard and for winning the “I Gave Challenge” – a sharing challenge related to a Purdue Day of Giving option that enabled donors to share about their gifts on social media as a way of encouraging others to give.
The incredible showing of support from our friends, faculty and staff, hospital clients, alumni, and students through the Purdue Day of Giving will have a huge impact! On average, more than 40 veterinary medicine programs benefit from the Purdue Day of Giving. This year, many gifts supported the League of VetaHumanz, to provide Super Power Packs to K-12 students; the David and Bonnie Brunner Purdue Veterinary Medical Hospital Complex, to assist with the purchase of equipment and other facility needs; and scholarships, to reduce the cost of a highly coveted Purdue Veterinary Medicine education.
