Global Tour Fund

1961 Tour of the Soviet Union

Electric with excitement … extraordinary performance … the humanity of others … truly legendary band director … first international travel … great professional experience … mental acuity and toughness … friendships that last a lifetime

These comments from School of Music, Theatre & Dance alumni who toured as students speak volumes. In fact, it is a group of alumni from the 1961 tour to Russia who have helped launch the Global Tour Fund to insure that future generations have the same opportunities. These alumni hope many others who have had the unique experience that only touring can afford will join with them in contributing to this fund.

Your donation can make the biggest impact now. The Global Tour Fund will be augmented by U-M President Mary Sue Coleman’s current donor challenge, The Student Global Experience.   For every two dollars donated, President Coleman will provide a match of one dollar. This means a gift of $20,000 becomes $30,000; a gift of $200,000 is transformed to $300,000.

Gifts can be committed over a five-year period and still receive the match. To find out more, contact:
