University of Michigan

Sponsorships


The SPG Section on purchasing, http://spg.umich.edu/pdf/507.01.pdf, states in Section IV  D “Most donations and contributions of University funds are not permitted under the State of Michigan Constitution. The University Controller in Financial Operations must approve any exceptions in advance.”   If procurement sees any disbursement that mentions “donation” or “charitable gift” they will flag it and send it to me for review.  Some events that are sponsored do mention in their materials that they have a charitable deduction component.
