Parent & Family Giving — Overview

Parent and Family Giving

Your student is on an amazing adventure and this is where it begins - at the University of Michigan.

During their time at U-M, students will have an academic experience that rivals all others in terms of excellence. They collaborate with world-class faculty and form lifetime friendships with students from around the world. They encounter new perspectives and transformative experiences in extraordinary learning environments, on and off campus. They become the leaders of tomorrow.

It takes parents like you to make Michigan a world-class institution. Our deeply established tradition of philanthropy through the Parent & Family Giving program offers an opportunity for Michigan parents to enhance the student experience across a wide array of programs and scholarships, and provide access to education for the brightest, most exceptional students. Gifts can be designated for a specific college, academic department, athletic team, club, or support service. Please join us to support the next generation of Leaders & Best as they learn to address complex challenges, transform lives, and help shape the future.
