  • The students of Putnam Co. are fortunate to have the Purdue Club of Putnam Co. Since it's beginning, many students from our local high schools have been given a boost with their education costs from the Purdue Club of Putnam Co. scholarship endowment held at the Putnam County Community Foundation.

    You do not have to be a golfer to support the scholarship endowment. Just write a check and send it to the PCCF for the benefit of the Purdue Club of Putnam Co. scholarship endowment.
