Day of Giving at Purdue University Northwest

(Hammond, IN) - Purdue University Northwest will host its annual Day of Giving fundraiser on Wednesday.


The 24-hour event is consistently the university’s most successful campaign for growing student scholarships, supporting existing scholarships, and enhancing support to programs that benefit students and the community.


“This is an important day for donors, alumni, faculty, staff, and students to come together and demonstrate just how much they value the university’s mission to promote transformative change for our students and metropolitan area,” says Lisa Goodnight, Vice-Chancellor of Institutional Advancement at PNW.

PNW has campuses near Westville and in Hammond.


“Whether they benefited from a PNW education themselves or simply want to pay it forward, our donors’ gifts make a big difference in affording current students the opportunities to fulfill their college education goals.”

This year, Day of Giving is a part of PNW’s 5.75 Roaring Ahead celebration recognizing the fifth year as Purdue Northwest and the 75th year of PNW’s legacy campuses.
