Planned Giving

You can give more than you might think possible by supporting Purdue Northwest in your financial and estate plans.

Planned gifts are generally gifts or commitments made in the present that “defer” benefit to Purdue Northwest until a future date. Explore the opportunities to leave a legacy to PNW.
