Why I Give from Within

Amy AndersonAmy Anderson
Nurse, C.S. Mott Children's Hospital

The Teddy Bear Fund is awesome. What a scary time for a little one to come to the hospital and not know what is going on. To have that comfort item to help them get through is a no-brainer for me. To donate to these funds in a little way makes us feel like we are helping.


Eric BurkmanEric Burkman
Transportation Services Supervisor

Everybody is down on their luck every once in awhile so I am happy to be able to support the employee Emergency Hardship Fund.

Terri GleasonTerri Gleason
Pest Management Supervisor

I give to the Emergency Hardship Fund because I want to be able to help my co-workers who need some support to get through a financial crisis.

Senior Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, School of Nursing

When you can look into the eyes of a student who’s going to benefit from your donation I think it inspires you to want to help.

George ShirleyGeorge Shirley
Joseph Edgar Maddy Distinguished University Professor Emeritus of Music and Professor Emeritus of Music (Voice), School of Music, Theatre & Dance

Seeing my students' desire to achieve motivates me to help them afford their education with scholarship support.

Sara SoderstromSara Soderstrom
Assistant Professor of Organizational Studies and Assistant Professor of Program in the Environment, College of Literature, Science, and the Arts

I give to scholarships because I love this place. I love U-M and I want to see it get even better.
