We have a matching challenge thanks to the generous support of an anonymous international donor! The center that receives the highest number of gifts on Giving Blueday will receive an additional $5,000. It is the number of gifts, not the overall amount that counts. Please help us win this challenge by donating any amount you desire (starting from $5). 

We’ve Missed You Challenge
Haven’t made a gift in a while? This challenge is for you. If this is your first gift to the university in the past two years, you could earn additional prize money for the cause of your choice. One returning donor who makes a gift this Giving Blueday will be randomly selected to earn an additional $1,000 for the fund of their choice.

Sharing is Caring Challenge
Use the #IGaveBlue and share what cause you supported. Two winners will be randomly selected, and each will receive an additional $500 toward the fund they supported.

Faculty and Staff Challenge
The top 3 stories that receive the most gifts from current U-M faculty and staff on Giving Blueday will receive the following prizes. Excludes student organizations. ● 1st - $4,000 ● 2nd - $2,500 ● 3rd - $1,500.

With your help, we want to establish and grow the Graduate Student Fellowship Fund that will offer graduate student tuition, benefits, and summer research funding to incoming and current graduate students associated with our center. While the center has trained a new generation of excellent scholars, the costs for higher education are on the rise and it is becoming increasingly difficult to assure that our students receive the necessary support while focusing on their studies.

We could not do this without your generous support. It is our great hope that we continue to work together to drive forward the mission of the center to educate about all things Armenian and provide the most promising undergraduate and graduate students as well as early-career scholars with an intellectual community wherein they may thrive. Read our student testimonials on our Giving Blueday page.
