Giving Blueday 2024: A decade of impact, driven by you.

Give to shape the next 10 years.

Date & time

Mar 13, 2024, 12:00 am-11:59 pm EDT



On Wednesday, March 13, celebrate Giving Blueday's 10th anniversary! From midnight through 11:59 p.m. EST, Fordies around the globe will have the opportunity to support what we love about the Ford School and University of Michigan! 

Our very own Ford School alums Karen (MBA/MPP ‘93) and Bob (MPP ’92) Lewis have generously offered a challenge gift to the Ford School this Giving Blueday! If 150 gifts are made on Wednesday, March 13, $20,000 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!

“As long-time supporters, and a former Alumni Board member of the Ford School, Bob and I continue to give back because we both believe in, and have witnessed, the transformative power of the Ford School’s world class public policy education. Tomorrow’s local, national and international leaders attending the Ford School today benefit from the strength of its professors, engaged alumni, academic programming, internships, and guest lectures. The Ford School has always promoted a supportive and respectful community and we encourage all of our alumni to come together now to support our next generation.” Karen Lewis (MBA/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. Give to shape the next 10 years!
