Purdue Day of Giving Yields Prize Money for PVM

Support for the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine and its student organizations poured-in during the Purdue Day of Giving April 29. With gifts totaling $1,051,675, Purdue Veterinary Medicine finished third overall among Purdue colleges and units in the on-line Purdue fundraising campaign, which netted the College an additional $8,603 in bonus prize money. 

“Our success reflects the passion and power of our college,” said PVM Director of Alumni Relations & Special Events Susan Xioufaridou.  “Together, we committed to participating in this Purdue campaign that raised a total of $13,695,951 for the university in support of student affordability and educational opportunities.”

Also as part of the Purdue Day of Giving, the College’s Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association (SCAVMA) secured third place in the student organization challenge with 112 gifts, and won a bonus $1,500 in prize money. SCAVMA also won the hourly challenge at 2:00 that afternoon for a random selfie on campus, securing an additional $1,000 in prize money.

Purdue Veterinary Medicine had a strong presence throughout the day with appearances on the Purdue Day of Giving media feed and other visible events.  “We appreciate everyone who participated by making a donation, participating in social challenges, and helping to spread the word,” Susan said. “Together, we grant opportunities to students to move the university forward. All gifts make a difference in the lives of our students.” Click here to view a PVM student thank you video
