Purdue Federal is lead sponsor of Purdue University’s 150th Anniversary Celebration

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (February 2019)2019 brings significant milestones for two Greater Lafayette organizations—Purdue Federal Credit Union’s 50th anniversary and Purdue University’s 150th anniversary.

Purdue Federal Credit Union (Purdue Federal) has been a longstanding supporter of Purdue University and is proud to be the lead sponsor of Purdue’s 150th Anniversary celebration, which culminates during Purdue’s Homecoming weekend this October. Through the sponsorship, Purdue Federal will help fund Purdue’s special anniversary events and speakers, marketing campaigns and more.   

Purdue Federal was chartered on Feb. 25, 1969. It was founded on Purdue University’s West Lafayette campus by a group of Purdue employees searching for a place where they, their families and their fellow employees could save and borrow money safely, confidentially and at a fair rate of interest. Today, Purdue Federal serves the faculty and staff, students and communities where Purdue University and its regional campuses operate.

Purdue University was chartered on May 6, 1869, when Gov. Conrad Baker signed a bill creating the university. It was founded after a Lafayette businessman named John Purdue donated land and money to start a college of science, technology and agriculture.

More information about the organizations and their anniversaries can be found at PURDUEFED.COM and PURDUE.EDU.
