In 25 days, 43 Spectrum Center friends collectively gave $20,095—and we had to raise our goal three times—as the center launched a new fund to help transgender students belong and succeed. Together with a lead gift of $50,000 from Marchell and Jeffrey Willian, the fund will get underway with a total commitment of over $70,000.
Our donors make the work we do possible. We are able to make an impact in the lives of our students because of the support we receive from the incredible Spectrum Center community.

Our fundraising priorities
Gifts to the Trans Belonging Fund will be used to support programming at the Spectrum Center with a preference for education and training, student support services and wellness, and events and partnerships.
Gifts to the Howard Bragman Coming Out Fund will be used to provide emergency financial assistance to students through Spectrum Center, including help for mental and physical health services, short-term housing, long-term housing, transportation, and tuition.
Gifts to the Jack W. Huizenga Need-Based Scholarship Fund support students who are unable to meet immediate, essential expenses resulting from temporary hardship due to an unforeseen or emergency situation, including COVID-19.
Gifts to the Chris Armstrong Scholarship Fund are invested in U-M's permanent endowment, ensuring that interest from the fund will be available in perpetuity as scholarship funding for students active in LGBTQ+ student causes.
