Letter to Alumni
Dear Alumnus/Alumna:

How long has it been since you visited the campus at your alma mater? If you're like many of your fellow graduates, we're probably talking years, not months. Over these years, the College of Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan-Dearborn has continued to grow and expand to meet the needs of its undergraduate and graduate engineering students. Do you remember the "temporary" modules in the 1970s and 1980s? Or were you taking classes when the Engineering Complex was added to the campus in 1997?

We would like to introduce the college's newest and most high-tech facility, the Institute for Advanced Vehicle Systems (IAVS) building, which was completed in December 2006. The IAVS building is home to 44,000 square feet of state-of-the-art engineering laboratories and learning environments, including the Henry W. Patton Center for Engineering Education and Practice, the student design and projects laboratory, and the integrated learning and design laboratory. It is a place where engineering excellence is nurtured and fine tuned. This facility is a spectacular addition to the University of Michigan-Dearborn campus.

As an alumnus, you can be part of this exciting addition to the grounds of the University of Michigan-Dearborn through the college's Donor Recognition Wall-Brick Program. Preserve your place in the history of this impressive new facility and help the College of Engineering and Computer Science at the same time by purchasing a brick to be placed on the donor wall inside the auditorium of the Institute for Advanced Vehicle Systems building. Donations to the brick program will be used to fund a perpetual source of scholarship awards for students in the College of Engineering and Computer Science.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to help your alma mater out and at the same time be an important part of the history of this building. We'll be there, will you?

See you on the "Wall,"
John M. Cole, P.E.

Many corporations have demonstrated their support for education by matching, and thereby multiplying, their employees' gifts to an educational institution, up to a set amount. For example, a $250 gift to the college's brick program when matched by an employer would fund a brick at the next level of giving ($500).

Several companies and corporate foundations have recently matched employee gifts to the college's Donor Recognition Wall-Brick Program. There are thousands of businesses nationwide that will match charitable contributions made by their workers.

The link below will assist you in finding out if your company has a matching gift policy. If your company is not listed, please check with your employer. Your human resource department is the most likely source for matching gift forms and information.

Matching Gifts: Company Search

If your company is eligible, complete and sign the matching gift form provided by your employer, and send it along with your contribution and completed brick program order form to:

Donor Recognition Wall—Brick Program
College of Engineering and Computer Science
University of Michigan-Dearborn
4901 Evergreen Road, Room 2070 EC
Dearborn, MI 48128

We will handle the rest. With matching funds, the effect of your gift may be doubled or even tripled! Please note that some corporations will also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
