VICTORS FOR MICHIGAN CAMPAIGN

It is time. Time to honor our history. Time to tell our story. Time to celebrate our community. And time to create our future.

At the University of Michigan-Flint, we combine the University of Michigan’s tradition of academic excellence with our community’s relentless enthusiasm to create a learning environment unlike any other.

The Victors for Michigan-Flint campaign is the largest and most ambitious capital campaign in our history. This campaign is designed to embrace the future of our students, our university, and our community.

At the University of Michigan, being a victor has always extended beyond the athletic arena to mean standing for something, standing with someone, and, above all else, standing together. Our partnership has never been more important. The university, the community, and donors like you can now move boldly to create our tomorrow.


CAMPAIGN UPDATE:

UM-Flint Victors campaign surpasses $40 million overall goal

Student support remains a major focus, area of need

September 20, 2017

The University of Michigan-Flint (UM-Flint) has reason to celebrate regarding the progress of its current capital campaign.  Today, UM-Flint Chancellor Susan E. Borrego announced that the university’s Victors for Michigan-Flint campaign has surpassed its goal by more than $11 million dollars to date.

As of September 20, the Victors for Michigan-Flint campaign has raised more than $51 million for its campus, with a little over one year left before the campaign closes in December 2018.

The Victors for Michigan-Flint capital campaign was developed as a multiyear effort seeking to raise $40 million or more in private philanthropy to increase student support, advance UM-Flint’s academic priorities, and expand its positive impact on the community.

The alumni and friends of this university have stepped up in a major way to put our campaign ahead of schedule and we are extremely grateful for their generosity and enthusiastic support of our mission,” said Chancellor Borrego.  

“However, we still have much work to do in meeting our student support goal and will work tirelessly over the remainder of this campaign to do so.”

UM-Flint officials set a target of $20 million for student support in the way of scholarships and other student-related services or programs.  To date they have reached just over the half way mark with $13 million and counting.

“Students are the heart of our university,” said Borrego. “Ensuring that they have the opportunity and access to a Michigan education is the highest priority in our Victors campaign.”
