Memorial & Tribute Gifts

When gifts are made in honor or memory of someone, the Alumni Association attempts to notify the honoree’s family so they may acknowledge the gifts, when possible. 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.
