Giving Blueday Thank You!

You helped the University of Michigan do it again! The fourth annual Giving Blueday took place on 11/28/17. It was a tremendous success, and funds raised are already positively impacting students on campus.

Here's a recap of the event:

  • 8,215 victors across all three U-M campuses and beyond participated
  • More than $4.4 million was raised
  • More than 130 student organizations participated for their specific cause, including:
    • Every Club Sports team on campus participated, which will help support their pursuit of National Championships.
    • "Michigan Active Citizens: Alternative Spring Break" made significant progress on their annual fundraising goal, and will travel in the near future to 20 sites across the country to expand partnerships.
  • More than 4,000 funds and areas on campus received financial support.
  • Multiple challenges and matching initiatives inspired many new and returning donors to donate.

Thank you for your support on Giving Blueday for the U-M bicentennial and beyond, as we all work to ensure the success of the current and future "leaders and best."
