Being “DMU proud” makes a difference. As a University employee, you make that difference today and for years to come in our collective efforts to prepare tomorrow’s health care workforce.
Scholarships were awarded based on gifts last year to DMU students who consistantly outrank their peers at other institutions in pass rates and scores on professional exams.
Together, we employees have raised more than $1 million over the past ten years through the Employee Campaign to support our University.
Financial gifts made to the University help fund outreach to schools and community medicine for under-served populations.
You can be DMU Proud of the DMU Fund
The DMU Fund is an annual fundraising campaign that strives to raise unrestricted gifts to the University. Unrestricted money has allowed the University to invest in student scholarships, technological and facility improvements, our excellent faculty and many other University needs and opportunities.
Annual gifts are an indication of the pride our DMU alumni and friends have for this remarkable and historic University. And it shows! Last year more than 50 percent of donors supported the DMU Fund.
Gifts to the DMU Fund go to work immediately, ensuring that more students achieve their goal of becoming DMU graduates and leaders in health care.
We go the extra mile in showing our pride in DMU in the way we support the annual Employee Campaign. Every year, approximately 70 percent of our employees step up with a gift to the campaign, far outpacing the national average of around 33 percent at other charitable organizations. That means we have a powerful and positive impact on our University, our students and the people and communities they will go on to serve.
Become a Proud Member of the President’s Society
The President’s Society honors generous donors who make annual gifts of $1,000 or more to DMU. Members of the President’s Society provide the components that make the University innovative and exceptional.
