Questions and Answers

Below you will find answers to many common questions about Driven by Giving 2023.

What if I can't give enough to make an impact?

Gifts of all sizes will make an impact! Thanks to the collective power of the UofM community, gifts of even $5 or $10 will add up to create a huge impact for current and future Tigers.

What other ways can I get involved?

Helping us spread the word actually has a huge impact! You can also become a Day of Giving Ambassador by sharing stories, challenges, matches, and your own custom Ambassador giving link. Post to social media using #DrivenByGiving and share why you chose to give back and why others should too. 

What area will my gift support?

You can choose to designate your gift to any impact area that you feel passionate about. One hundred percent of your gift will go to the designation that you choose. If you are unsure which designation to support, you can choose to give to the Memphis Fund which supports the UofM's area of greatest need at the time of your donation.
