Imagine the difference you can make.  Our Development team solicits donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations to promote learning, research, and education at the University of Michigan-Flint. Our Major Gift Officers represent each of the four units on campus and provide fundraising leadership to complement, encourage, and support university-wide efforts to achieve comprehensive objectives for generating financial resources to support students, faculty, and staff.

Development offers donors ways to give through the annual fund, major giving, planned giving, annual giving, or scholarships.  This office also assists students, faculty, and staff with requesting funds.  You can make a gift to the University of Michigan-Flint by sending a check, with a letter indicating how you would like your gift to be used, to Development and Alumni Relations, 303 East Kearsley Street, Flint, MI 48502-1950.
