Community & Economic Development
In Stamford, Connecticut—home of Purdue’s headquarters—and the surrounding areas of Fairfield County, we provide financial support to many of the non‑profit and business organizations that do so much to enhance the area’s economic development.
Among these organizations are the Stamford Chamber of Commerce, Business Council of Fairfield County, Stamford Partnership, Stamford Downtown Special Services District, and United Way, to name a few. Purdue colleagues serve on many of these organizations’ Boards and Advisory Committees.
Another example, The Connecticut Women’s Business Development Council (WBDC), helps women achieve economic self-reliance by teaching them how to start and grow their own businesses, creating jobs and community vitality. Purdue partners with the WBDC to provide financial support and a volunteer member for the Board Committee.
In communities outside Stamford in which Purdue has operations—such as Wilson, North Carolina, where our primary U.S manufacturing facility is located—the company and its employees support the United Way and other local non‑profit organizations.
