Become a Benefactor
We are fortunate to have so many generous donors who are committed to supporting Purdue Fort Wayne. Their gifts give our students the chance to receive a quality education and life-changing experience that prepare them for adulthood. And their generosity has a lasting effect that influences our students, their families, and our community.
Many of our donors make their positive impact through the Chancellor’s Society and Weitzman Society. We appreciate these
At the core of the Chancellor’s Society is our ongoing mission to foster student success. Members of the Chancellor’s Society share a common mission and vision: Purdue Fort Wayne—and our students—are worth the investment.
Join the Chancellor’s Society by making a one-time gift of $1,000 or more in cash or stock, or multiple gifts or pledges that total a minimum of $1,000 in a calendar year.

The Weitzman Society, named after Oscar and Ophelia Weitzman, is Purdue Fort Wayne’s planned giving society. The Weitzman Legacy Society gives the university the opportunity to connect with and properly thank donors during their lifetime—donors whose gifts may otherwise go unrecognized until the time of their passing. Our goal is to ensure that their legacy and wishes are remembered and honored, now and in the decades to come.
Here are some of the benefits of being in the Oscar and Ophelia Weitzman Legacy Society:
- Exclusive invitation to Purdue Fort Wayne’s annual Celebrate PFW dinner
- Valuable financial and estate-planning services
