Giving to the LGBTQ Center

Giving to the LGBTQ Center

Please contact the LGBTQ Center if you have questions.  

LGBTQ Support Fund

Purdue is proud to launch what we believe is a first-in-the-nation fund earmarked specifically to support LGBTQ students in a university center community. This fund will ensure that financial emergency or hardship does not stand in the way of a Purdue education for LGBTQ students and their allies. Contact Ryan Dafforn at rtdafforn@prf.org for more information about this fund.


You can help us reach our $500,000 funding target!

LGBTQ Center General Fund

The LGBTQ Center's General Fund provides funds to meet its most pressing needs. Your gift allows us to continue celebrating the achievements and future of the LGBTQ community. Contact Ryan Dafforn at rtdafforn@prf.org for more information about this fund.
