Annual Fund Grants
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 may include expenses for travel, conferences, and equipment.
