Ways to Give

There are several ways to give to the Purdue Alumni Rowing Endowment. One popular option is to participate in the annual Purdue Day of Giving, which provides a 24-hour window to make a donation and support the team. Individuals can also make one-time donations or set up recurring donations to provide ongoing support. Another option is to take advantage of employer matching programs, which can double or even triple the impact of a donation. For those interested in leaving a lasting legacy, there are opportunities to make planned gifts, such as legacy gifts or estate gifts, that can provide long-term support for the endowment. By exploring the different ways to give, donors can find the option that best fits their interests and financial situation, while still making a meaningful contribution to Purdue Crew.
