Encouraging others to participate makes all the difference!

Where Does the Money Go

All funds raised for McKendree University on #GivingTuesday will go toward the Annual Fund unless designated to another fund of the donor's choosing. The Annual Fund is of greatest need at the University as it helps bridge the gap between what tuition covers and the actual cost of an education from McKendree. This fund supports student scholarships, academic instruction, student services and more!

If you would like to support another fund at McKendree University, simply make that designation when filling out the online form. If that fund is not included in the designation drop down box, please type that fund in the comment box. That will ensure that your gift goes to the right place!
