Frequently Asked Questions

Why does PMO need my support?
The university provides less than 15 percent of our annual operating income. Individual and corporate donors provide essential annual support for the operation of our program.
How will my gift be used?

Your gift will support our mission to offer opportunities for students to learn, perform and grow together while engaging audiences everywhere.

Unrestricted gifts help support a wide range of our essential operational needs, including music, performance venue rental fees, piano tuning, sound equipment and more. Gifts are also used to support once-in-a-lifetime travel opportunities and need-based and merit-based scholarships.

How can I create a planned gift to PMO?

Help ensure the future and lasting success of Purdue Musical Organizations by creating a planned gift to support our students and program.

Additional gift options are available, and you may be able to receive a charitable tax deduction before the year ends.
