Michigan Engineering Senior Matching Pledge Challenge

Help your sponsored student organization, department or program raise funds now and support future Michigan Engineers in years to come!

The Michigan Engineering Senior Matching Pledge Challenge allows you to pledge your support for Michigan Engineering in the first 5 years after graduation and support your student team (SSO), your department or other selected program in your senior year. Pledge to give a gift of any amount each year for 5 years after graduation and the SSO or department of your choice will receive $250 to spend this year.

How it Works

Each senior who takes the pledge and supports your team with their match provides $250 of funds for your team to use this academic year! The more seniors who pledge, the more matching funds your team will get!

The gifts you make in the future will continue to support the programs you have benefited from as a student; the pledge you make now will benefit your organization, department or program this year.

A limited amount of funds have been allocated from the Michigan Engineering Fund to match your pledges to support this program.

Student Teams – encourage your senior members to pledge during the Senior Pledge Week in October.  Funds will be distributed to student teams in December 2016.
