Welcome to the University of Michigan-Flint's 2015 Community Report on Philanthropy. You, our donors, continue to make a strong statement in support of UM-Flint: our students, our faculty and staff, and our community.
As you'll see, this financial support has a real impact. We're welcoming more students to campus via scholarships and financial assistance, helping others to return to their studies after hardships, investing in visionary new programs while continuing to support innovative programs already seeing results in students' lives, and continuing our commitment to learning through service.
Every dollar raised, every commitment made, helps pave the way for new generations of UM-Flint students. Thank you for making our students' dreams a reality. Thank you for your support of a bold new vision for UM-Flint. Thank you for helping us seize the opportunity to play a role in the transformation of Flint and the region.
It all starts with you.

In 1992, a group of donors came together to establish the Holt, Broadway, Broome, McCree, Pointer, and Wright Scholarships, scholarships that continue to empower local students at UM-Flint. One of these namesake scholarships honors Flint’s former Mayor, Floyd J. McCree. Mayor McCree was Flint’s first black mayor, as well as the first black mayor of Michigan and of a major city in the United States. In the video below, family members Byron and Kyle McCree stop by the University of Michigan-Flint archives to look through records and photographs, holding an unscripted conversation about Floyd McCree and his impact on the city.
