Support CEHHS as we make a difference.

University of Michigan-Dearborn serves the community through a distinctive approach to higher education that merges the highest of academic standards with a strong and steadfast commitment to advancing prosperity and quality of life in southeastern Michigan.

The ability to serve students, faculty and the community through scholarships, curriculum innovations and the latest technology is strengthened through gifts to the annual fund. Gifts from alumni and friends help close the gap between state support and tuition and the actual costs of higher education.

Your gift is more than a contribution to the university—it's a gift to your hometown. Nearly 80 percent of our graduates stay in southeast Michigan, bringing new knowledge and ideas to our businesses, schools and communities. Your gift may be designated to the Fund for UM-Dearborn or the college of your choice.

Thank you for supporting the College of Education, Health, and Human Services. Every gift matters.

Your gift will help the College of Education, Health, and Human Services (CEHHS) prepare and develop exemplary teachers, administrators and health and human services practitioners through emphasis on scholarship, diverse clinical experiences and effective instructional and leadership practice.

Ways to Give

  • Cash gifts are put to work immediately for the College of Education, Health, and Human Services and allow donors to take applicable credits and deductions in the current tax year.

  • Appreciated securities significantly reduce the donor's capital gains tax. Tax deductions are based on the full market value of the gift in the year it is made, if the stock was held for more than one year. Gifts in excess of the allowed 30 percent of the donor's adjusted gross income can be carried over and deducted for up to five years.

  • Many avenues are available for planned giving. Donors considering a planned gift should contact Kelly Cronin, Director of Development-University Initiatives, at 313-593-3500.

  • Donors may give a personal possession of special interest, such as art, collectible, rare books, equipment, automobiles, or other artifacts. Because special tax rules apply, donors are encouraged to discuss their plans with tax counsel.

  • Many corporations demonstrate their support of education by matching, or multiplying, their employees' gifts. Before making a gift, contact your employer's personnel office for the necessary matching gift forms.
