Alumni, Donors, and Friends

Appreciation and Recognition

Beginning with our founding gift from Ford Motor Company, gifts from friends and generous alumni have been vital to maintaining University of Michigan excellence right here in metropolitan Detroit. Today your support remains more important than ever.

Through our donor recognition programs, we extend our gratitude to you for helping us fulfill our mission. Thank you!


For The Michigan Difference campaign, we plan to recognize donors with new signage.  Working with Michigan-based design firm Xibitz, we have created a beautiful new piece that will recognize all donors with cumulative giving of $10,000 and above to the campaign.

The new signage (a working concept is pictured below) will be installed in the front main hallway of the University Center.  Made of double-paned, UV-resistant glass and featuring a backdrop image of the pond and the new University branding, this new piece will be a beautiful addition to our campus and help us to thank all of our generous donors.

The signage will be installed after the conclusion of the campaign.  Look for it in the University Center by mid-2009.
