Purdue ends seven-year campaign with $1.7 billion

June 29, 2007

A Purdue University fund-raising campaign launched in 2000 has amassed $1.7 billion, $400 million more than the original goal.

The fund-raising results, to be officially announced tomorrow, cap a stint by Purdue President Martin Jischke that includes a furious economic development effort advanced yesterday by the unveiling of a tech park project near Indianapolis International Airport. Jischke retires tomorrow.

Nearly 30 percent of Purdue alumni donated to the seven-year campaign, the university said.

The funding is earmarked for scholarships, faculty support, programs and facilities.
