Reminder to Thank Your Purdue Day of Giving Donors

For the first time ever, Purdue Extension had 100% participation, with all extension offices across Indiana’s 92 counties receiving at least one gift.  Thank you for the critical role each of you played in making Purdue Day of Giving an enormous success. Purdue Extension played a crucial role in this success, contributing significantly to the College of Agriculture’s total gifts. An impressive 75% of the gifts were listed as Extension gifts under the College of Agriculture!

In total, Purdue Extension received 1,200 gifts, including contributions from counties and county 4-H programs.

All counties will receive their donor lists by the end of this week. If you have any questions about your list, please contact Carie Herbst. Once you have your donor list, please ensure you send thank-you notes to those who supported your county during Purdue Day of Giving.

Thank you for your incredible participation and support!
