Student Life

Giving Blueday Nov 29, 2016

Tomorrow's the day! Support what you love about Michigan. Make an impact on students' lives. And help Student Life to turn Giving Tuesday into Giving Blueday.

Did you know that over the past 50 years, funding to U-M from the State of Michigan has declined from providing nearly 80% of the university's General Fund to less than 16%?

Tuition and fees have had to rise to make up the difference. To remain affordable, U-M is committed to keeping its costs low, limiting tuition increases, and investing heavily in financial support for students but we need your support.

For nearly 200 years donors have played a vital role in making the University of Michigan a superb institution. When you make a gift to U-M, you help assure that this university will always be a place where leaders are shaped; a place where knowledge is born and creativity ignited; a place with the passion, talent, and will to take on and solve the world's most pressing problems. 

This new American tradition comes after Thanksgiving, and Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, when we all celebrate giving back to the organizations that we love on “Giving Tuesday.” You can support areas of Student Life that have been meaningful to you or your student, benefit from hourly challenges and matches, or give to the University of Michigan as a whole.

Every gift counts - it's a great day to be a Victor for Michigan!
