On April 25, the entire Purdue community will come together for the 5th annual Purdue Day of Giving — to grant opportunities for arts, culture, and ideas and transform lives by building a better, stronger, more affordable Purdue. Through social challenges, real-time leaderboards, and some good old-fashioned rivalry, you will have the chance to push Purdue Convocations to the top — and win bonus funds!
Not a member of Friends of Convos? Join for as little as $50 annually and make your gift count even more on April 25!
Convocations brings a diverse array of world-class performances and intellectual encounters—including collaborations with an ever-widening circle of partners—fulfilling our mission by connecting them to our academic, local, and regional audiences through engaging educational opportunities.
Friends of Convocations are a dynamic group of arts supporters whose gifts allow Convocations to keep ticket prices low, to bring educational arts programs for students of all ages, and to allow us to make big projects a reality. Revenue from ticket sales only covers 60% of the true costs of our programs, and we don’t receive state funds, so gifts from generous individuals, corporations, and foundations help us close that gap.
