Giving Blueday 2023: Be part of something bigger

Date & time

Mar 15, 2023, All Day



Giving is everything. Giving brings us together.

On March 15, be part of something bigger. From midnight through 11:59 p.m. EST, Fordies around the globe have a unique opportunity to come together and support what each of us loves about the Ford School and the University of Michigan.


Our very own Ford School alumna and Ford School Committee member Penny Naas (MPP ‘93) has generously offered a challenge gift to the Ford School this Giving Blueday! If 150 gifts are made on Wednesday, March 15, $25,000 will be unlocked to support the Ford School Community. We need your help to reach this goal; make your gift to student support TODAY and make an impact for the Ford School!

“I give back to the Ford School because I believe in its work to educate and prepare future policy leaders to address our world’s global challenges. I know that my impact on the issues I care about can be increased exponentially by supporting others. Giving back is important because one can only do so much as an individual–our impact is magnified by coming together as a community, pooling our resources to support the Ford School, and helping to develop future leaders." Penny Naas (MPP ‘93)

Your gift, no matter the size, will make a difference. You can even increase the size of your gift with funding from a challenge gift. No matter where you are, or the time of day, you can be part of something bigger with the Ford School. What will you do in one day?

You can help us celebrate and learn more here.
