Every painting that amazed you, every piece of music that moved you, every play or film that changed that way you saw life, was created or performed by a person who received the education to do so.  At Purdue Fort Wayne, we educate those people. And we will continue to teach generations of artists, musicians, actors, and designers for a very long time come.

“Thank you for your generous donation to my education at Purdue Fort Wayne. Your assistance is helping me get through my last year, and I am extremely grateful for that. When I graduate, I plan on helping children with disabilities through music. Again, thank you for helping me achieve my dreams!”   

- Kathy Dehring, Music Therapy major

More Testimonials


Although Purdue Fort Wayne endeavors to keep its tuition low, going to college is unfortunately still too expensive for many of our students. That is why we are so grateful to you. And that is why your donation is important to us. You are a part of our success. 

“I cannot thank you enough for this God sent gift, which has taken a huge weight off my shoulders, and has allowed me to focus on getting top grades. Thank you for your kindness and for supporting students such as myself, in making quality education a reality.”         

- Teena Butler, VCD Graphic Design major
