Ever True: The Campaign for Purdue University

Ever True concludes at $2.529B, $500M beyond goal.

“It always seems impossible, until it’s done,” as the saying goes. Congratulations, “Ever True” Boilermakers! We did it!

Ever TrueThe Campaign for Purdue University is in the record books as the largest fundraising effort in Purdue history.

Launched in 2012 and publicly announced in 2015, the campaign inspired Purdue alumni and friends from 113 countries, all 50 states, and all 92 Indiana counties to surpass the ambitious goal of raising $2.019 billion by 2019, during our sesquicentennial celebration—“150 Years of Giant Leaps.” This accomplishment also comes during the 50th anniversary of the original “giant leap for mankind,” when alumnus Neil Armstrong became the first man to land a spacecraft on the lunar surface and walk on the moon.

This is our time, our moment to savor our collective success. Together, we made history at this pivotal moment in the University’s ongoing chronicle of learning, discovery, and engagement as Indiana’s land-grant college. The campaign also has created momentum for the future through its three priorities: placing students first, building on our strengths, and championing research and innovation.

Just as every ending is a new beginning, again we raise our song anew, ever grateful and ever true. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do for the University we love—and its future.

Hail Purdue!

Had a lot of fun marching with the AAMB for the last time. I am grateful for the amount of opportunities I've had with this department. I will definitely miss this band (especially the saxes!!!). Can't wait to watch this band's performances as a fan. #aamb #indy500 #evergratefulevertrue #old
