Gift Giving

Alumni and Friends Make a Difference

Every year, the Economics Department benefits from the generosity of alumni, parents, and friends. Your support helps to ensure academic excellence and an environment that attracts and rewards exceptional students and outstanding faculty.

At Michigan, undergraduate students learn about applied economics, economic theory, macroeconomics, econometrics, and finance from leading researchers in the field. Graduate students work closely with faculty and prepare for important positions in business, public service, and academia. Distinguished faculty inform students and society alike on the latest research and trends. And visiting scholars promote intellectual exchange. Your gift can help to enrich and sustain these opportunities.
