Memorial & Tribute Gifts

Honoring a special person in your life or commemorating your graduation, anniversary, or another occasion with a gift to the University makes for a personal and lasting tribute. You can specify for whom or what you are making your gift while online. You can elect for us to send a letter to the honoree or family of the deceased notifying them of your thoughtful gift, but not revealing the amount of your contribution. Tribute gifts provide meaningful support for the U-M while allowing you to celebrate people and events that mean so much to you.

Names are listed in alphabetical order and, when applicable, are followed by the name of the fund the family has selected as their preference for donations in their loved one's honor. Please click on the name of your loved one to make a gift in his/her honor.

If you would like to have a tribute created, please fill out this form.
