Give

At the heart of Monmouth’s success is the generous support of our alumni, parents and friends.

Every Scot counts

That’s why every gift to Monmouth College fuels the Flame of White & Crimson. With your help, we can fund top-level academic programs, support our Fighting Scots, provide scholarships, and keep our beloved residential campus beautiful. 

Best of all, you can see your philanthropy in action as our students produce cutting-edge research, explore the world and earn national recognition. 

Every gift in its place, and a place for every gift

Monmouth recognizes the impact of every gift, no matter the size. Whether it is a contribution to the Monmouth Fund, a matching gift from an employer or a bequest, your gift helps keep the Flame burning bright for generations to come.

  • “Coming from another school, Monmouth accepted me instantly. The students and professors all helped me transition from my old school to here and the family aspect really hit home immediately. It felt like I had been here forever. The professors and advisors really helped with the transition of credits which can be a challenge but here it was never an issue.”
