Giving to Sociology

2019 Department of Sociology Graduate

Whether you give a little or you give a lot, we have a place where your contribution will make a real difference. Our students are still the leaders and best, and we want to continue to provide the necessary resources that can help prepare them to achieve success during their time at Michigan.

Would you consider contributing to a fund to help students participate in experiential opportunities with NGOs and volunteer with non-for-profit entities? Perhaps you would rather support faculty cutting-edge research on complex entities or theoretical breakthroughs. Did you feel it was difficult to balance studies and family? We could use your help to provide more financial support to students who are less fortunate or whose funding was cut due to state funding cuts.

The Department benefits enormously from the generosity of University graduates, their parents, and other friends of Michigan Sociology.  Annual giving provides significant funds for student and faculty research.  We take great pride in the Department's distinctive endowments, which enable us to sustain undergraduate and graduate programs on par with the finest private institutions

No gift to the Department is too small, and each one contributes to maintaining the standard of excellence that is the Michigan Difference.  We thank each one of you - both for those who have already given and those who are considering doing so.  For more information on giving, please see below.

"Being a part of Project Community was an incredible way to get to serve the people of the greater Ann Arbor community while also getting hands on experience. Thanks to the generous funding from U-M I was able to complete all of my programs very successfully!"

- Project Community Alum ('20)

"I enjoyed the SOUL program so much because it was a weekly reminder that you are not alone... you feel that you have a community, you have support, you belong, and that you're going to make it!"


- SOUL Alum ('21), Sociology Opportunities for Undergraduate Leadership Sociology’s Program for First-Generation College Students

"The Sociology major and department offers its share of opportunities to challenge ourselves as students, thinkers, and social beings. It's important that we continue to seek these opportunities to grow and challenge ourselves into the future."
