Endowments & Gifts
A gift of any kind is a way of showing support for Modern Greek Studies. There are many ways to support Modern Greek Studies at the University of Michigan: outright gifts of cash, checks, credit cards, securities, and matching gifts; gifts in kind; or planned gifts such as bequests.
In the past people have given Endowments for the C. P. Cavafy Professorship, the Platsis Symposium and Prizes, the Pallas Lecture, and gifts in kind such as books, journals and newspapers, phonograph records, archives such as the Pyrros Papers, which are used in teaching and research.
You may make a gift, either outright or over time, or you might consider a planned gift in your estate. To learn more about these and other opportunities, including planned giving options such as charitable trusts, gift annuities, and bequests, please contact Diane Tracy by phone at 734.615.6761 or via email.

Endowments provide a stream of income in perpetuity and are invested in the University's long-term portfolio. Endowments may be named to honor a donor, a donor's family, a major figure or anyone whom the donor wishes to recognize.
Modern Greek benefits from a number of generous gifts, including gifts of cash and gifts-in-kind. Modern Greek also benefits from the hospitality of friends who host events for students, faculty and the general public.
Annual expendable gifts help Modern Greek with a variety of program enhancements, including student scholarships and awards, special materials, lectures and discussions, readings, performances, and much more.
