Supporting the Campaign

Annual Giving

Your generosity can touch the entire University of Maryland (UM) community. Gifts to the Annual Fund strengthen the University's ability to serve students through scholarships, teaching innovations, and research opportunities that help shape the experience of nearly every student. Immediate and unrestricted, Annual Fund gifts go directly into the operating budget to support teaching and learning, to meet unforeseen challenges, and to provide resources for new priorities.

Through your gifts, alumni, parents, and friends support the University’s most pressing priorities, including faculty recruitment and retention, financial aid, library and computer resources, and facility maintenance and renovation.

Private gifts are essential to fulfill UM’s mission. Through the Annual Fund, you may choose to designate your support for students, faculty or research in any of the University's schools, units or programs.
