18 hours and 53 minutes to honor our heritage and traditions.
An incredible day!
Scots, you are amazing! The Monmouth family came together to make our seventh annual Scots Day of Giving the best yet! We challenged each other and came through when it counted. We woke up to bagpipes, reconnected with our alma mater, created new memories, and shared our favorite Monmouth Seven!
Throughout the day, we came together to paint the nation in Tartan and raised almost $310,000! We also supported several worthy causes, including the Monmouth Fund, the Fighting Scots Society, the SOFIA program, and the Senior Class Gift, which will go towards supporting the Highlander Hub and Career Closet.
Each dollar raised on Scots Day of Giving is its own celebration. It’s cheering on your favorite team, looking forward to a bright tomorrow, and letting all of Tartan Nation know that you can always count on the Fighting Scots to come through. Our hope, gratitude, and resilience were on display from the first note of the bagpiper to the last minute.
It was a truly great day to be a Scot! Thank you for celebrating with us and we look forward to doing it again next year!
The History of Scots Day
Scots Day of Giving continues a long and proud tradition of celebrations with roots all the way back to the 1800s. Once, Adam West even got involved! We keep the party alive every April with our Scots Day of Giving. Don’t worry, even if you’re far from campus, we’ll make sure you’ll still hear those bagpipes.
