When gifts are made in honor or memory of someone, the University of Michigan/Alumni Association notifies the honoree’s family so they may acknowledge the gifts. You will also receive an acknowledgment, and the University of Michigan will send a receipt for tax purposes. When making gifts in honor or memory of someone, please include the contact information for the individual or family you are honoring. If you do not have this information, the Alumni Association will find the information and contact the appropriate relative.


Leaving a planned gift by naming the scholarship program in your will is a simple way to support the program in a meaningful way. If you would like to prepare a bequest to the UM Club of New York Scholarship fund we can provide suggested language applicable to an expendable unrestricted bequest. (Please note suggested language is intended to provide examples, not to serve as legal advice. The University and the Alumni Association recommend that you seek legal counsel regarding your personal circumstances, your wishes for your estate and the preparation of necessary documents.) Please contact the club at [email protected] with any questions for further details.

The Fund is a public charity, under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and donations to it are fully deductible to the extent provided by law.
