Giving Blueday 2019: Support what you ♡ about the Ford School

Date & time

Dec 3, 2019, 12:00 am-11:55 pm EST


One day. All of us. What will you do in one day?

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.

Your gift, no matter the size, will make a difference. You can even increase the size of your gift with funding from matching gifts and challenges that you can participate in throughout the day. No matter where you are, or the time of day, you can support what you love about the Ford School.

Alumni Giving Challenge

This Giving Blueday, we are excited to announce our Alumni Giving Challenge. From now until Spirit Day on July 9th, 2020, every gift from Ford School alumni (to any fund) counts toward a challenge to unlock even more support for our students. When 250 alumni give, we unlock $25,000 to directly support Ford School students. 500 alumni donors unlocks an additional $25,000—totalling $50,000 in student support. 

No gift is too small

Make an impact through a gift to one of our areas of highest need:

  • Ford School Fund for Student Support
    The Ford School Fund for Student Support helps ease the financial costs of tuition and internships which are part of a top-notch Ford School education.

  • Dean's Strategic Fund
    A gift to the Dean's Strategic Fund provides financial support for strategic initiatives that arise throughout the course of the year.

  • IEDP Colombia: International Economic Development Program
    Gifts to the International Economic Development Program support this innovative three-credit academic program that serves as an experiential learning opportunity for graduate students to think and walk through the multi-faceted experience of an international project from start to finish. This year's IEDP course will focus on Colombia.
