Leaving a lasting legacy
In addition to our annual giving funds, the Ford School is building its permanent endowment for student support and faculty research. Endowed funds create a lasting legacy, while providing a stable base of support for the school. Donors can create a named endowment fund with a minimum gift of $25,000 (payable over three to five years with a signed gift agreement). These funds are invested and managed for long-term growth through the University of Michigan Endowment.
Another way to create a permanent fund at the Ford School is through estate and planned gifts. The University has created this online resource to help you explore these opportunities. While planned and endowed gifts are a big investment, and require some coordination, our team can provide guidance as you determine the best way to create your Michigan legacy.
