Ways to Give
Transforming Students: Powering Our Region
UM-Dearborn donors change our world. They build classrooms and labs. They fund innovative research and real-world learning opportunities. They make long-term investments in the talent and potential of our graduates.
We are heartened and inspired by the amazing support of our donors. And yet there is still critical unmet need on our campus. Student scholarships, faculty support, and facility upgrades continue to require further assistance.
Designate for UM-Dearborn
As a donor, you have the opportunity to choose where your gifts are made across the University of Michigan. Make your intentions clear when you specify UM-Dearborn in your giving plans. If you're already working with one of our development colleagues in Ann Arbor, we're happy to work together so you can support the causes that matter to you at UM-Dearborn.
How to Participate
- Contact a development director for your unit or college of interest or call us 313-593-5130.
- Consider hosting a small event at your business or in your community.
- Encourage your friends and fellow alumni to support UM-Dearborn.

- Find a way to lend a hand — wherever you are, however you can.
Endowed vs. Expendable
Endowments are funds that are invested in perpetuity. A portion of the interest will be used to support specific donor designations, but the principal is left intact. Expendable funds are those that may be spent completely in support of whatever a donor designates.
