When Sheldon Danziger, now the Henry J. Meyer Distinguished University Professor Emeritus of Public Policy at the Ford School, made the decision to retire from Michigan at the end of 2014, he and his wife Sandra decided to give back. They established the Sandra and Sheldon Danziger Fund to honor Sheldon’s lifelong contributions to the Michigan community by supporting undergraduate and master’s students pursuing summer internships in social welfare policy and research.

Sheldon and Sandra recognize the power of philanthropy and its ability to make a difference in the lives of Ford School students. They have agreed to match all gifts, up to $5,000, made on Giving Blueday 2015. Join Sheldon and Sandra and be a Victor for the Ford School today!
