Make an ongoing impact
Join the Michigan Ross Annual Giving Society

The Michigan Ross Annual Fund allows us to foster economic inclusion, increase our global prominence and visibility, prepare tomorrow’s leaders, and seize new opportunities.

Sustaining educational excellence requires resources, and the Annual Giving Society provides the school with the ability to meet unexpected demands and be nimble when fresh possibilities emerge.

The Michigan Ross Annual Giving Society recognizes all donors who make gifts totaling $2,500 or more to the Annual Fund at the University of Michigan Ross School of Business within each fiscal year (July 1–June 30). Donors who give $25,000 or more annually will receive recognition in the Dean’s Circle. 

The World of Difference Scholarship is awarded to both BBA and MBA students, a scholarship made possible by the thousands of alumni, friends, faculty/staff, parents, and students who support the Michigan Ross Annual Fund.

Annual Giving Society contributors will receive:

  • World of Difference newsletters
  • An Annual Report
  • Invitations to special events and receptions
  • Recognition in the Annual Giving Society
  • Dean’s Circle contributors receive special communications and invitations to engage with Michigan Ross leadership


Please help us build a better world through business by joining the Michigan Ross Annual Giving Society.

Without scholarship support myself, I wouldn’t have been able to attend Michigan. I hope I can give others the same life-changing opportunity.
