Light This Candle Campaign

May the flame of white and crimson burn forever bright. 

Logo for the Light This Candle Campaign

Our national and global societies yearn for people empowered to lead us through these challenging times. Monmouth has not just the opportunity, not just the necessity, but the duty to lead.

Monmouth is distinctively positioned to create a more intentional, purposeful and coordinated program of human development, and ensuring that this experience is responsive and available to a changing American and global society. This path represents the next stage in the evolution of the residential liberal arts experience.

This is a watershed moment in the life of our College. Our ability to seize this moment — to place Monmouth College on an irreversible path to greater levels of service, strength, and acclaim — lies in our hands.

“A flame of white and crimson” has lighted the way for generations of young people for more than 160 years. Through the vision, courage and generosity of the Monmouth family, that flame will burn stronger and brighter. Most of all, through the young men and women whose paths will be illuminated by the Monmouth College experience, the world will be a better place.

Through the Light This Candle campaign, Monmouth will continue to build its endowment by raising a minimum of $75 million by Dec. 31, 2022. This campaign will strengthen the College, now and for the long run, by focusing on four objectives.
