On Wednesday, March 10, the Stamps School community joined together in support of art and design students as part of U-M’s seventh annual Giving Blueday. This year was truly special; our preliminary results show that over 60 donors came together to raise more than $195,000 to support art and design education at U-M. This total included two new scholarship funds which were established to support Stamps students with financial need. The Stamps School also received a generous matching donation from an anonymous donor to incentivize others to give throughout the day that provided an additional $30,000 in funding for student support.
Giving Blueday contributions will provide critical support in a variety of areas over the next year, including: scholarships, emergency funding, DEI initiatives, and COVID-19 Health and Safety.
As we finalize details and tally results, we are reminded of how lucky we are to have a community who comes to the aid of our students. From the entire Stamps School team to our supporters: Thank you! We are incredibly grateful to those who generously supported our amazing students. We couldn’t do it without you!
