Thoughtful giving requires planning
Seasons change, fashions change, interests change … in fact the only thing consistent in our life is change. That is why it is important to take stock of your investment portfolio and estate plan on a regular basis, to see where you are and where you need or want to be.
As markets fluctuate and investment values rise and fall, and as the end of the year rapidly approaches, you may wish to review your long-range financial objectives and consider changes in how your assets are invested. You may also want to consider how changes might affect the way you want your property distributed in the future. Such a review also is an opportune time to consider your charitable contributions to support those causes and organizations that have great meaning to you.
Purdue University and the College of Agriculture rely upon the generosity of our alumni and friends as we seek to provide flexible funding to support the key components of our long-range strategic plan. In our school, we are focusing our efforts on student scholarships, faculty endowments, facilities, and the Dean's Development Fund.

There are many ways to support Purdue Agriculture and its many programs, including:
