WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)-- Boilermakers near and far really showed out to give back to their university on Wednesday.
In just 24 hours, nearly $38 million was raised during Purdue's Day of Giving.
It's about $10 million more than last year's total.
Former and current Boilermakers donated from all around the world to support the university and specific programs.
The most donations were brought in by the College of Pharmacy, which was around $9 million.
Vice President of Development Amy Noah said every year they think it's not possible to keep expanding.
However, the Purdue family continues to get behind the day of giving.
"The thing that made this year unique was that last fall people started talking about what they were going to do on day of giving," Noah said. "And so for us, that's when you start to imagine that the number could continue to grow a bit."
The university received gifts from multiple countries and all 50 states.
Purdue is already planning a Day of Giving for 2019.
