An appeal to raise $200,000 from alumni and friends to help fund scholarships for Millikin students. Although Millikin is engaging in a concentrated effort on May 1-2 to draw attention through email and social media to the need for student scholarships, gifts for the 2014 challenge will be accepted through June 30, 2014. During the challenge, each gift will be matched, dollar for dollar, by an anonymous donor – up to $100,000.
The name of the challenge represents Millikin’s school colors as well as the fact that Millikin is the Big Blue and our new president is Dr. Patrick White. President White has made this particular challenge an important priority during his first year in office.
In this volunteer packet, you will find details on how to tell your friends about the Blue and White Scholarship Challenge through email and social media.
Did you receive a merit scholarship when you were a student? Were you a JMS, Leighty Science, Long-Vanderburg, Service Learning or Presidential Scholar? If your answer is yes to any of these, scholarship donors helped make your education possible. Help current and future generations of students afford a Millikin education by giving to help fund their scholarship support. Some call it giving back and others call it paying it forward, but the end result is the same. You’re helping Millikin students achieve their dream of completing a college education.
Each dollar makes a difference, especially now when it is matched by the anonymous challenge. Gifts of any amount are appreciated.
You can double or triple the impact of your gift to MU if you or your spouse work for or are retired from a matching gift company. Check with your company’s personnel office to be sure.
Yes, and we will acknowledge your gift with a written letter you can use for tax purposes.
