Help Support MARI's Mission

Thank you for your interest in donating to the Mary A. Rackham Institute! Your generosity can help us fulfill our mission. MARI was started by Mary A. Rackham in the spirit of helping our fellow humans.

As a MARI supporter, you are joining a long line of people who see the value in offering high-quality public services for those who need them. Donations are used to offset the cost of our programs and services for those who may not be able to afford them, to expand our services, and to provide free resources such as lectures and workshops for the community at large. Large or small, each donation counts!

University of Michigan's Annual Day of Giving

Leaders and Best Image

MARI welcomes donations any time! But during March of each year, the University of Michigan Development office hosts an annual fundraising day of giving, called Giving Blueday. It is a day for everyone who loves Michigan to join together to combine their support and maximize impact. MARI and UMAP both participate in Giving Blueday as well as fundraising efforts throughout the year.
