Victors for Michigan

November 6, 2013

University of Michigan will publicly launch its historic, comprehensive fundraising campaign, called Victors for Michigan, on Friday, November 8. This will be the largest campaign in the university’s history and among the largest university campaigns in the nation. The campaign includes all three U-M campuses, the health system, athletics and other university units. University of Michigan-Dearborn is participating in the Victors for Michigan campaign.

UM-Dearborn Campaign Status
UM-Dearborn recently completed its campaign feasibility study and began the leadership gifts phase of its campaign. During this important “quiet” phase, volunteer campaign leaders and university leadership are working together to: advise on campaign strategy; develop messaging and aspirational goals; and assist in securing leadership gift commitments. The following funding priorities have been established as pillars of the campaign:

  1. Student support (for access and affordability)
  2. Program initiatives for student success and community engagement
  3. Learning environments for student success and community engagement
  4. Faculty support for student success and community engagement

UM-Dearborn is in active campaign mode, albeit in a less-public way than the Ann Arbor campus. On Friday, November 8, UM-Dearborn will host the first in a series of events for various, targeted audiences of donors and prospective donors to showcase student and faculty achievement.

Once campaign momentum has been firmly established with a robust fund of leadership gifts, UM-Dearborn will formally announce its campaign goal and enter into the next, more-public phase of its campaign.
