Make a Gift
Support the College

The Purdue University Ever True campaign concluded June 30, resulting in the largest and most successful fundraising initiative in the University’s history. Launched in 2012, and publicly announced in 2015, the campaign generated $2.529 billion, exceeding its goal of $2.019 billion by 25%. The campaign ending coincided with the University’s sesquicentennial celebrating “150 Years of Giant Leaps,” the 50th Anniversary of alumnus Neil Armstrong’s walk on the moon, and 60th Anniversary of the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine. Ever True inspired more than one million gifts from donors across 113 countries and all 50 states.
