Supporting UM History

The History Department greatly appreciates the support it receives from students, parents, alumni, and friends of the department. If you have any questions about making a gift to our department, please contact Kyle G. Volk, chair of the department.

New Fundraising Initiative: Friends of UM History Opportunity Fund

This special, unrestricted fund will help the department support some of its most critical on-going needs, including: support for students and faculty to do original research; funding for student and faculty travel and participation in academic conferences; honoraria for renowned visiting scholars and lecturers; resources to attract and retain talented students; upgrading our seminar room and facilities; and much more. 

Special Fundraising Initiatives

In addition to general fundraising, the department has instituted several special initiatives designed to honor retired faculty members and to support UM students. If you are interested in making a special gift for one of these initiatives, please indicate your preference in the memo line of your check or in the "additional information" section below.
