Record day for EAPS during Purdue's fourth annual Day of Giving
The Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences is thrilled to announce that we received three deferred gifts yesterday totaling $800,000.
There were two generous anonymous contributions:
One anonymous contribution was for $500,000 and will be directed toward faculty support.
Another gift was for $200,000 and will be directed towards student support including scholarships, as well as assisting with the funding of field camp experiences and research.
In addition, Kelly Waymire, a 1980 alumnus of the Earth Sciences program, made a deferred gift of $100,000. Her gift will be allocated toward undergraduate and graduate support that will impact a number of different areas for our students in the future.
We cannot thank our alumni, faculty, staff, and friends enough for their support in making this such a special day during the year of our Black and Golden Jubilee Celebration.
A grand total of gifts for the department during the Day of Giving will be announced soon!
