Double the impact of your support for IGR on March 13!

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 13, we'll be asking as many of our friends as possible to help us take advantage of a generous matching gift that'll support key priorities and student opportunities. Thanks to this anonymous match, 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:

  • Facilitator trainings for students
  • Student workshops  
  • Student research opportunities
  • Summer Youth Dialogues on Race and Ethnicity in Metropolitan Detroit program and U-M Social Justice Fellows 
  • Expanding intergroup relations education on campus with students, staff, and faculty

Every single 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 13, 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! Stay connected to our social platforms for updates on the campaign–help spread the word by sharing our posts on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
