Give to Fraternity & Sorority Life

The University of Michigan is committed to transforming our students’ education by extending academic excellence from the classroom into real-world experiences that develop a global purview and a creative, entrepreneurial mindset.

Fraternity and Sorority Life supports the fraternity and sorority community at the University of Michigan, and works with the four self-governing councils and their affiliated groups to provide support to students with recruitment, intake, event planning, educational programming, social, philanthropic, and logistical needs. Contributions will provide the staff the opportunity to enrich the lives of the sorority and fraternity members through workshops, forums, and more. With your generous donation, we can continue to provide quality academic, personal, social, and service opportunities that will empower our students to serve, lead, and conduct themselves with high integrity, in accordance with sound values.

There are multiple opportunities to support Fraternity & Sorority Life.
