As part of the Office of Development and Alumni Relations, Annual Giving at the University of Michigan-Flint aims to promote the highest standards of teaching, learning, scholarship, and creative endeavors of UM-Flint faculty, staff, and students by maximizing private support and alumni participation. Your support of the Annual Fund, Faculty/Staff Campaign, or an area of your choice furthers our efforts to develop a successful, ever-growing annual giving initiative.
For more information about making a gift to the Annual Fund, please contact Brent Nickola at (810) 424-5450 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
The Annual Fund
An annual fund, sometimes called an Enrichment Fund, is the fund designated by the campus to procure unrestricted gifts for the unit. Gifts free of restrictions give deans and chancellors a reliable, flexible supply of funds that enable the unit to place resources where they are most immediately needed or where opportunities are greatest. Common uses of unrestricted funds include student aid, faculty support, emergency renovations, new academic initiatives, research assistance, and the purchase of books, collections, supplies and equipment.
Support of the Annual Fund at UM-Flint allows support of students, faculty, and staff through Annual Fund Grants. Funds can be requested from the Office of Development and Alumni Relations to support academic, creative, technical, and research endeavors. This includes expenses for travel, conferences, and equipment. For more information about Annual Fund Grants, including how to apply, visit our Annual Fund Grants page.
The reasons for making a gift are very personal to each donor, and UM-Flint offers a vast array of funding opportunities to meet the personal goals of our donors. Perhaps working with students through the years makes you want to provide scholarship or fellowship opportunities. Maybe our academic department needs private funding for unique programs and activities that you feel are important to support. A specific area of research might be particularly meaningful to you and your family.
There are an endless number of reasons to make a gift, but all reflect a sincere belief in the work being done here at UM-Flint and a belief in every student's pursuit to fulfill his or her dreams. We strive to ensure that students have every opportunity to experience the highest quality of education through research, international experiences, and internships. Private gifts provide that extra measure of support. The special qualities you bring to campus make up the fabric of the UM-Flint community. We hope you will extend that support though your participation in the Faculty and Staff Annual Giving Campaign. Together, we CAN make the difference!
