Giving to the U-M College of Pharmacy
Through the end of FY2018, we reached $22,623,003 against the College’s “Victors for Michigan” campaign goal of $20,000,000. Nearly 2,100 donors (alumni, friends, corporations, foundations) helped us achieve this remarkable goal. We are very grateful to everyone.
To put this in perspective – 30 new endowments were created at the College that are already generating nearly $350,000 annually to support scholarships, fellowships, faculty, and research. There is one gift of particular note: Larry, PhD’81, and Ann Hsu donated $2.5 million to create a professorship in their name.
We are especially grateful to a particular group. The Dean’s Advisory Committee serves as our steering committee for the campaign. These men and women provided guidance, opened doors, and were personally philanthropic. Providing overall leadership was our campaign chair, Dinesh Patel, PhD’79, and our honorary campaign chairs Fred, BSPharm’57, and Dee, AB’57, Lyons.
Thanks to everyone who helped us succeed. While there will always be another campaign around the corner, we want to make sure we celebrate our own “Victors for Michigan.”
