The Annual Fund

Who benefits from the Annual Fund?

  • Our students. Tuition and fees cover less than 75 percent of the real cost of each student’s education. The Monmouth College Annual Fund provides a vital source of income that bridges the gap between what tuition provides and the actual cost of running the college.
  • Our faculty and staff. Your gifts help pay the salaries and benefits of employees, enabling Monmouth to attract and retain exceptional faculty and staff. By maintaining small class sizes and student-faculty ratios, faculty can engage students in active learning, discussion, field study and research.
  • Our alumni. As the alumni participation rate and annual giving increase, more resources are made available to further improve the quality of a Monmouth education. This builds Monmouth’s reputation and the value of a Monmouth degree. The Monmouth College Annual Fund also enables the college to expand communication and services for alumni, including Monmouth College Magazine, class reunions, events and receptions around the country, group travel programs, etc.

The Monmouth College Annual Fund helps:

  • Recruit and retain talented, hard-working students with scholarships and financial aid, enabling them to better afford a Monmouth College education.
  • Enhance extracurricular activities that enrich student life and build students’ leadership and teamwork skills.
  • Sustain academic programs and develop new ones.
  • Expand library and computer resources, keeping Monmouth on the leading edge of information and technology.
  • Stage music, theater and other fine arts programs and performance tours.
  • Subsidize international study, broadening the horizon for many students.
  • Maintain buildings and grounds, making the campus comfortable and safe for current students and attractive to prospective students.
  • Support intercollegiate, intramural and club sports programs.
