BIG goal. BIG day. BIG BLUE. 

Join us on Thursday, April 30th, 2020 for True Blue Day, Millikin University's annual day of giving. As we celebrate the progress Millikin has made since its founding on April 30th, 1901, we invite you to show your Big Blue pride through the following opportunities: 


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

  • Spend the day with President White, even from afar: When you make your best gift possible online, we will email you a Paper President to print and display. Post a selfie with your Paper President during True Blue Day, and display your Big Blue pride for all to see

  • 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. Don't forget to bring this cap to our grand finalé celebration of True Blue Day in honor of President White! 

  • Celebrate all day: Our University Commons will transform into True Blue Central from 8am-11pm on April 30th. Stop by to donate in person, enjoy a True Blue lunch in the cafeteria, hear from one of Millikin's many scholarship recipients and take a picture in our photo booth with your own Paper President  

  • Join us for a grand finalé: As we wind down True Blue Day, we invite you to join us for a closing celebration. Gather in the University Commons at 9pm as we "tip our caps" to President Patrick E. White and close his final True Blue Day as President of Millikin University
