YPSILANTI – $100,000 in 100 days. That's the challenge.

Thanks to a gift made by an anonymous donor, all donations of up to $5,000 made by any first-time donor to Eastern Michigan University over the next 100 days will be doubled.

The initiative will apply to the first $100,000 in gifts from first-time supporters of Eastern, so it will pay to make your gift today.

"There has never been a better time to ask members of our campus and community to help make a difference in the lives of so many," said Tom Stevick, vice President for advancement and executive director of the EMU Foundation, noting the gift made by the highly generous donor.

"Working together, we can make a difference and meet the challenge."

Making a gift is a one-stop process. Simply visit and complete the online giving form.

The gifts can go to a wide variety of programs and initiatives at Eastern.
