Supporting our students
Please consider making this year’s gift to the COVID-19 UM Student Technology Fund which provides students with $500 each to cover the cost of a refurbished laptop or subsidize the purchase of a new computer that meets their needs. A gift to this fund will tackle an immediate need and create a long-term solution for our students. Giving is a personal choice and your support to any area of our community is appreciated and makes a profound difference. If you prefer to make a gift to another fund that’s meaningful to you, please do so.
