Find Your Passion Campaign

Your generosity is inspiring, humbling, and powerful. During our last capital campaign, the Stamps School of Art & Design rallied together to raise the largest amount in the school’s history.

The Find Your Pas­sion” Cam­paign, a com­pan­ion to the U‑M Vic­tors for Michi­gan Cam­paign exceeded its fundrais­ing goal of $28 mil­lion to sup­port stu­dent schol­ar­ships, new class­room spaces, inter­na­tional study abroad, fac­ulty sup­port and other crit­i­cal needs. The most raised in the his­tory of the school, we have deep grat­i­tude to the many donors who sup­ported our vision through­out the five-year cam­paign. Their invest­ment in our col­lec­tive future is a tes­ta­ment to their opti­mism and con­fi­dence in our stu­dents, fac­ulty, and staff, and in the role that cre­ators and cul­ture mak­ers can play in under­stand­ing, chal­leng­ing and chang­ing our world. 

The Stamps School’s suc­cess was just one part of the university’s larger cam­pus-wide cam­paign, which con­cluded at the end of 2019. U‑M made his­tory, becom­ing the first pub­lic uni­ver­sity to raise $5 bil­lion in a fundrais­ing campaign.
