2019 Alumni Giving Month

November marks our 4th Annual Alumni Giving Month & Giving Tuesday Challenge! Throughout November we will be celebrating our alums in all sorts of ways and working together to reach our Alumni Giving Month goal!

The incredible group of young alums below have come together to create our Young Alumni Matching Gift Challenge*! Graduates from the classes of 1999-2019 who are new donors will have their gifts 100% matched AND previous donors who increase from their last gift will have their increase matched (up to $10,000). This is HUGE for Michigan Hillel students and we’re so thankful for everyone’s support! To check on your last gift amount to ensure a match, contact Nicole at [email protected].

But wait a second, we’re going to sweeten the pot even more to show our gratitude for your generosity and participation. Each week we will be giving away awesome prizes to our a-maizing alumni supporters. Look for the email announcement in your inbox each Monday for this week’s prize and previous winner.
