Philanthropy Cords

Graduating students who make a gift of $20.23 to the Class of 2023 Giving Campaign will receive a philanthropy cord to wear at Commencement. Gifts can be made at fly.monmouth.edu/23gift and can be designated to scholarships, a favorite academic program, Division I sport, or a club or organization that means the most to you. And because publications like U.S. News & World Report measure alumni donor participation when ranking universities, your support helps to influence how a wide range of decision makers, from prospective students to hiring companies, view the value of a Monmouth University degree. Please continue to check your Monmouth email for more information on philanthropy cord distribution as Commencement gets closer.
