Help us unlock a $5,000 matching gift!
We seek to develop conscious, compassionate, and engaged world citizens who can lead others in creating a more socially just world. That’s why students connected to The Program on Intergroup Relations learn to think critically, build resiliency, and develop leadership skills.
On March 15, we're going to ask our friends for help in one area of this work—we're looking or at least 50 friends to help us take advantange of a generous matching gift that'll support key priorities and student opportunities. Thanks to a generous anonymous matching gift, we have the opportunity to double donations made to The Program on Intergroup Relations. For 24 hours on Giving Blueday—U-M's annual day of giving—gifts to IGR will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $5,000! Bookmark our Giving Blueday page to give, track, and share with your friends and family.
Donations help power:
- Undergraduate and graduate student research on intergroup relations, student development, and the impact and effects of social justice education
- Facilitator trainings for students
- Metropolitan Detroit Summer Youth Dialogue Program and Fellows
- Student workshops
- Expanding intergroup relations education on campus with students, staff, and faculty
Your gift of $5 or more gets us one critical step closer, and sharing with your friends and colleagues can get us even further.
How to give
On March 15, starting at midnight (Eastern time zone), give to IGR and double your impact. You’ll be able to see our progress and post or text directly from our Giving Blueday page to your networks!
