Your Generosity Makes our Season Bright

Our wonderful, fabulous Friends of Convocations – people like YOU – keep showing your appreciation with gifts and ticket purchases that help us bring artists and audiences together in our community.

If you haven’t yet made your annual contribution, or are considering giving another gift for the 2016 calendar year, please be aware of the following guidelines, per the IRS:

  • The postmark on the envelope dictates the year in which the gift is made, unless it’s a credit card gift. (See below.)
  • Credit card gifts count in the year in which the gifts are processed. Please ensure credit card gifts are made online by midnight on December 31!
  • Electronic Securities Transfers count in the year in which the date/time is stamped on the transaction when received by Purdue Research Foundation.

Though Purdue University is observing a winter recess during the final days of 2016, Donor Services staff will be available between 8am – 5pm EST, Monday through Friday, at 800-319-2199 or by email at You may copy Convocations Development Staff by including Kendra Illingworth at or Mary Ann Bobillo at We will get in touch with you as soon as we can!
