Ways to Give

Make an Annual Gift

Annual Gifts provide immediate unrestricted support enabling us to respond quickly as opportunities arise.

Annual gifts from alumni and friends provide support that is vital for the success of the University of Michigan academic medical center. Gifts help meet the emerging challenges and contribute toward research opportunities, student aid, visionary initiatives and much more.

Create an Endowment

Endowments lend special strength to our efforts by providing funds that can last for generations.

An endowed gift creates an invaluable legacy that provides sustainable funding for generations to come.  An endowment can be used to support a scholarship, fellowship, professorship or research fund already in place or to establish a new one, which you may wish to name for yourself or in honor of another person.

Estate and Planned Gifts

Estate and Planned gifts create lasting commitments to advance our work beyond your lifetime.

Make a difference for the future of health care. Our staff can guide you through many ways to be supportive, such as gifts that pay you an income for life and including Michigan Medicine in your will or trust. We can help you determine which option best fits your personal situation.

Corporate and Foundation Giving

Corporate and Foundation giving is a unique partnership to accelerate advances in health care through institutional support.

Michigan Medicine is an ideal partner for foundations and corporations seeking a mutually beneficial relationship with a world-class, academic health care organization. Support for Michigan Medicine helps the institution build upon its reputation for outstanding patient care, research and education. Awards from private and corporate foundations enable us to attract exceptional students and faculty, maintain state-of-the-art clinical and research facilities and programs, and continue groundbreaking research.

Corporations can also partner with Michigan Medicine by sponsoring one of our many fundraising events and through innovative employee-giving initiatives.

Faculty and Staff Giving

Gifts from current and retired faculty and staff send a powerful message that our commitment to excellence is worthy of broad community service.

Our faculty and staff do vital work: teaching and nurturing students, serving patients, conducting research, and making the university’s daily operations flow. What’s less well known is that more than 19,000 faculty, staff and retirees have made gifts to U-M in the past six years. Whatever the reason, faculty and staff can support Michigan Medicine or any area through the Victors for Michigan campaign.
