During your 50th anniversary year, you have the opportunity to celebrate and give back to Purdue! Please give generously and help students succeed. All gifts will be counted toward the total class goal.

Giving Opportunities

Class of 1961 Scholarship Endowment

Scholarships Goal: minimum of $25,000 within 5 years. Individual gifts of any amount will collectively come together to make a difference through this scholarship. Funds raised are invested, funding the scholarship in perpetuity.

This scholarship is merit-based and is designated for high-performing students.

In the event that $25,000 is not raised in five years, the funds raised for the Class of 1961 Scholarship will be distributed as regular, nonrecurring scholarships.

Create Your Own Scholarship Endowment

A minimum of $25,000 is needed to endow a scholarship. You may choose to name the scholarship in honor of a family member, classmate or loved one, or to recognize a special professor who transformed your life. If you are interested in creating an endowed scholarship of your own, please call (800)319-2199 and ask to speak with at Director of Development about creating a scholarship endowment.

Total Class Goal

Between those who give to the Class Scholarship, those who create their own scholarship endowment and those who choose to give to an area of their passion, we hope to raise a total of $200,000 for students at Purdue.
