There was no shortage of support for Purdue University Northwest.
During its annual Day of Giving, nearly $900,000 was raised through more than 1,240 donations during the event’s 24-hour period in late April.
Donors’ gifts are used to support student scholarships, academic programs, Pride athletics, student organizations and other strategic initiatives.
“PNW received an overwhelmingly positive response with generous gifts from all across our community to support PNW’s students, academic initiatives and mission,” said Lisa Goodnight, vice chancellor of Institutional Advancement at PNW. “Our sincerest gratitude goes out to all those who took the time to contribute a gift.”
PNW ranked fourth among 73 participating units in the Purdue system for total gifts received. The university was in the top 20 of participating entities system-wide in total dollars raised.
These achievements awarded bonus money to PNW. Participation in PNW’s Day of Giving also increased by 51% from 2021, said Amy Hemingway, development operations manager.
