it supports ALL our educational efforts year round.
Purdue Entomology has provided unique, hands-on science education for over 40 years. We rely on the generous support of donors to help us keep the majority of our programming FREE.
Your donations support our work with over 50,000 Hoosiers a year through public events and school visits, our Bug Barn live collections, and teaching experiences for Purdue students.
Your donations to the Bug Bowl Fund help us:
- Continue our policy of FREE programs for any school with over 50% of their students receiving free or reduced lunches via the Indiana Supplemental Nutrition Program
- Hire Purdue entomology students and give them hands-on, career-building experience
- Support our conservation breeding programs in order to reduce wildlife trafficking and preserve endangered arthropod species
- Keep all our live animals fed and provide them with species-appropriate housing, in alignment with AZA TITAG standards if possible.
