BPM-106 Solicitation of Gifts

Revised May 1, 1990

This policy shall apply to any solicitation effort of individuals, corporations, groups and foundations which may or may not be related to the University or any of its campuses, divisions, departments or other subdivisions.

Fund Raising by Staff Members

To avoid duplication and proliferation, all staff members involved in fund raising shall be under the direction and management of the Campus Development Office and whenever UM endorsement or review is indicated, such plans shall be submitted to the Council on Institutional Relations.

Approval Required

Proposals for campaigns, special gift solicitations, gift level clubs, solicitation of corporations, business foundations and associations and annual giving programs must be approved by the Campus Development Office and endorsed by the Council on Institutional Relations.

Individual gift solicitations of a routine nature need not have University endorsement but should be cleared, in advance, with the Campus Development office.
