Looking for Leadership Opportunities?


My name is Molly Grotjan and I am a member of Purdue Foundation Student Board (PFSB). Our primary goal is to develop our members to become impactful leaders during their time at Purdue while connecting with Purdue alumni and donors. PFSB gives opportunities to undergraduate students to assist the University Development Office in educating the student body about the impact of private giving and philanthropy at Purdue. We serve as ambassadors to the University’s philanthropic initiatives. This organization has many benefits for any student, including alumni connections and leadership opportunities. Last year, we hosted Purdue’s astronaut alumni when they came to campus, attended the Boilermaker Ball, and celebrated the conclusion to the Ever True fundraising campaign! 

  • We will be having two callout meetings on March 4th. One will be in-person in WALC 1132 at 6 PM ET. Then, we will have a virtual callout at 7:30 PM. Please see below for the Zoom information for the virtual callout:

  • “Experience PFSB” Night on Wednesday, March 10th at 7 PM in WALC 2007 or online. During this event, attendees will learn more about private giving, PFSB’s impact on campus, and connect with our members.
