Gifts to the Millikin Fund are an important part of the University’s operating budget, and help cover the costs associated with providing quality opportunities of Performance Learning to MU students.
Thanks to the support of donors like you, MU students are given these opportunities and more:
- Biology students gained practical experience in veterinary research at the Illinois Raptor Center.
- Information Systems students developed a database application for BRE Law, a local law firm.
- Student-run ventures like Blue Connection, Blue Satellite Press, Carriage House Press and First Step Records provide opportunities for students to contribute to the local economy and emphasized the value of entrepreneurship within the arts.
- Nursing students developed clinical practices, providing education for at-risk teen mothers and their children in cooperation with Baby TALK, a local organization.
For our current fiscal year, which runs July 1, 2019, to June 30, 2020, our goal is to raise $660,000 for the Millikin Fund. Each dollar makes a difference, and gifts of any amount are appreciated. You can even double or triple the impact of your gift to this important fund if you or your spouse work for or are retired from a matching gift company.
