Faculty and staff are essential to the excellence and success of the University of Miami—not only through the vital and valued work you do, but through your support of Momentum2.

Working at the University of Miami is much more than just a job. It’s also a source of pride in being part of a top-tier research university that provides outstanding education, lifesaving health care, beneficial discoveries, and dedicated service to the community.

Maintaining and expanding the University of Miami’s superb academic programs, outstanding environment, and varied activities and resources depends on much more than tuition. In addition, many deserving students cannot attend or complete their educations at the University without financial aid.

    The new campaign offers an inspiring way for members of the U’s “immediate family” to support the University above and beyond our daily responsibilities.

Momentum2 offers an inspiring way for members of the U’s “immediate family” to support the University above and beyond our daily responsibilities. Student scholarships and enhanced learning opportunities are among the wonderful results.

The precise amount of your support is completely up to you. You can designate your gift to any school, college, department, academic program, or area of interest, from scholarships to study abroad, research labs to libraries, athletics to the arts. If you can’t decide, you can simply make your gift undesignated, providing University leadership with maximum flexibility in allocating the funds toward the greatest needs and opportunities.

Faculty and staff participation delivers impact far beyond dollar value, because it is often considered by corporations and foundations when deciding where to designate donations and grants. Your participation lets the University—and the world—know that you believe in and support the University of Miami. It helps the University achieve its goals, expand its programs, and gain greater recognition as a leading academic institution. That, in turn, makes our work more meaningful, our jobs more secure, and the University an even more extraordinary place to work.

So explore the goals and giving opportunities of Momentum2 and contribute today. Then stay tuned for exciting campaign updates in the months to come, including a new payroll deduction online giving form through MyUM that will make future donations even easier. Thanks very much for your support!
