The $85 million “Transform MU” capital campaign was officially launched in May 2010 to help revitalize Millikin’s campus through significant advances in creating new student scholarships, increasing endowment and faculty development funds, and improving infrastructure and facilities. The five-year campaign exceeded its monetary goal in October 2014 and will end Dec. 31, 2015. However, gifts are still being accepted through the end of the year as the university continues to fundraise for important building projects and other campaign priorities.

There are many options for giving to the Transform MU campaign

  • Pledge an amount to be paid over the next five years, using a payment schedule convenient for you.
  • Send a gift by check.
  • Make a gift online or by phone via your VISA, MasterCard or Discover Card.
  • Contribute appreciated stock or shares of mutual funds.
  • Establish a charitable gift annuity or charitable trust, providing you with payments for life. Your financial adviser and our staff can help you decide if this is a good option for you.
  • Make an estate provision in your will and/or request that memorial gifts be made to Millikin in honor of yourself or a loved one.

Honor a loved one

You may choose to honor a loved one or commemorate your connection to Millikin by naming a meeting room, faculty office or other designated area with your gift. Ask our staff for information on current naming opportunities.

Match your gift

Your place of employment (or your spouse’s) may match your gift. Check with your employer for eligibility requirements.
