Believe in True Blue.

We are a True Blue community that values and continually strives for academic excellence and an unsurpassed student experience. We are a True Blue community that comes together in support of a shared passion. We are a True Blue community that believes in making a difference in the lives of our students and creating positive change on campus and around the world.

With your help, we will reach our Challenge goal of 1515 donors. Imagine the impact we will make on students, campus and beyond when we come together to Believe in Blue.

Give Today 


The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted individuals and businesses all over the globe, and Millikin University is no exception. Your support of the Millikin Fund, which financially provides for the areas of greatest need throughout campus, will be fundamental in helping our University navigate the remainder of this academic year and move strong into the years ahead. Every gift made from now until June 30 will sustain unexpected and urgent expenses related to the impacts of COVID-19 and help the University in assisting students during this critical time, such as:

  • Increased housekeeping and facilities services throughout campus, as we increase precautions to help prevent the spread of illnesses through shared spaces;
  • Software simulations for remote coursework in departments dependent upon hands-on learning opportunities;
  • Technology upgrades throughout campus, increasing the ease with which students and faculty can engage in a digital classroom setting;
  • Innovative options for Performance Learning for students who are scattered throughout the country; and
  • Any additional expenses we will incur in order to manage the Millikin community safely through this crisis.

BIG goal. BIG day. BIG BLUE. 

Join us now through June 30, 2020 for True Blue, Millikin University's annual giving challenge. As we celebrate the progress Millikin has made since its founding on April 30th, 1901, we invite you to show your Big Blue pride by making your best gift possible, becoming a proud True Blue Ambassador, Tipping Your Cap and celebrating the day with fellow members of the Big Blue family. 


Our goal is 1515 donors making their best gift possible to Millikin University, in honor of our 15th President, Dr. Patrick E. White 

Spend True Blue with President White, even from afar: When you make your best gift possible online, we will email you a "Flat Pat". Post a selfie with your cutout during True Blue Day using #TrueBlue2020. 

  • Tip your Cap to President White: You can now sport the iconic blue ball-cap worn by President White. Purchase your $25 blue cap here and $15 of your purchase will be donated to Annual Scholarships in honor of our 15th President.
