About

**To kick us off, members of the Millikin University Board of Trustees have committed to matching gifts dollar-for-dollar made to annual scholarships--up to $50,000! Double your impact by being one of the first True Blue donors!**


In 1901, Decatur citizens rose to meet James Millikin's challenge to support and establish Millikin University. Now, on the university's 10th Day of Giving anniversary, we issue a new challenge: 

Will YOU help us reach our $250,000 goal to support the Millikin students of today and tomorrow?

Give Today!

One Flag Represents One Donor!

Good morning, Millikin! Today is the day!

Lets cover the lawn! One flag represents one donor to The True Blue Challenge thus far... 375!


Every flag we plant today represents more than just a gift. It's:
πŸ’™ a lifechanging opportunity for students
πŸ’™ a statement of belief in our mission
πŸ’™ an investment in the future

Make your True Blue Challenge gift by midnight tonight at millikin.edu/trueblue and we will plant your flag! Every dollar, every donor helps us reach our True Blue goals for a bright Millikin future! #MUTrueBlue
