It’s Giving Blueday!

March 16, 2022  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Today is Giving Blueday! For this community day of giving, we are celebrating philanthropy and inviting patients, families and our team members to support what they love about Michigan Medicine.

During last year’s Giving Blueday, 1,638 donors made gifts totaling more than $430,000 to Michigan Medicine. About 8 percent of gifts came from staff and faculty — a record since Giving Blueday began in 2014.

Supporters rallied around a wide range of areas. This year, 37 featured areas hope to keep the momentum going.

Areas seeking support include cancer, pediatric and other research funds; medical school student-run programs; patient support operations; and many more. Visit the Michigan Medicine Giving Blueday website to see all the impactful projects and programs featured for support.

There are many ways to get involved.

  • Give a gift: Make a gift to support your favorite cause within Michigan Medicine or elsewhere at U-M. In many campaigns, a matching gift will double the value of your contribution.
  • Spread the word: Give your social media accounts a #GivingBlueday makeover. Share images on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram throughout the day.
  • Thank a friend: Post to social media using #GivingBlueday and recognize a health care professional, or give a shout-out to a friend or community member who gave a gift to U-M.
  • Follow along: The Giving Blueday team will be highlighting milestones throughout the day. Search #GivingBlueday on social media channels or visit to keep up.

Thank you for your support of the Michigan Medicine areas you love!
