Examining UM’s record-breaking $5.28 billion fundraising campaign

Among the $1.71 billion donated to programs, UM received its largest donation in the history of its health system. The $150 million commitment from longtime donors Richard and Susan Rogel was intended to boost innovative cancer research.

It also helped establish the Wolverine Pathways program, which offers a full four-year scholarship to UM to students from Ypsilanti, Southfield and Detroit who actively participate in 90 percent or more of program activities and maintain a 90 percent or better school attendance rate.
