Thank you for supporting the vital work of Purdue Hillel! Your investment makes a significant difference in the lives of Jewish Boilermakers, and is the backbone of our ability to engage hundreds of students in meaningful way
Thanks to the generosity of more than 150 supporters, we were able to raise over $60,000 to support Jewish life at Purdue. What's even more notable is that Purdue parents, alumni, fans and friends helped raise more dollars than other Hillels that have ten times the number of Jewish students on campus as Purdue. This is another testament to the power of Jewish life at Purdue and the West Lafayette community.
This is only the beginning of our important work to grow the Jewish community and experience at Purdue. Be sure to check in with us here to stay up to date on all of the wonderful ways we are meeting and exceeding the needs of our Jewish students. Thank you for being our partners in this deeply important work!

If you have a donor advised fund you can make your grant recommendation to the Purdue Hillel Foundation using our
Tax ID #20-0633180.
A gift of life insurance can be made through a new or existing policy by the donor designating Purdue Hillel Foundation as the owner and beneficiary. The donor receives an income tax deduction for the value of the policy when the gift is made and income tax deductions for future premium payments each year.
An easy way to double or even triple your donation to Purdue Hillel is to find out if your company has a matching-gift program. Such programs typically match all or a percentage of employee contributions to charitable organizations, making the employer a partner in the personal philanthropy of their employees.
Simply obtain a matching gift form from your employer’s personnel office and fill it out, listing Purdue Hillel as the charity organization.
To leave a charitable gift in your will or revocable living trust, you simply include a clause that directs a gift be made to Purdue Hillel Foundation. You can leave a specific dollar amount, a set percentage of your estate, or the remainder of your estate. If you already have a will, you can add a charitable bequest with a supplement, called a codicil. Or, if it’s time to update your will, you can include a gift to the Purdue Hillel Foundation in your updated will.
A gift annuity is an agreement whereby the donor transfers assets, such as cash or appreciated securities, to Purdue Hillel Foundation. In return, the donor receives a guaranteed payment for the rest of the donor’s life.
Gift annuities, which are income-producing gifts, are popular with donors because they receive a charitable income tax deduction, possible estate tax savings, a fixed payment for life, some tax-free income for a period of time, and possible capital gains tax savings.
Under certain circumstances it may be advantageous to name Purdue Hillel Foundation as the beneficiary of an Individual Retirement Account or your employer’s pension plan. Doing this may benefit you and your heirs.
You retain control of these funds during your lifetime. At your death, these funds, if left to Hillel, qualify for a charitable deduction and, thus, may save on estate taxes.
