"Lord, teach me to be generous. Teach me to serve you as you deserve; to give and not to count the cost, To fight and not heed the wounds, to toil and not to seek for rest, to labor and not to ask for reward, save that of knowing that I do your will."

St. Ignatius Loyola
1491-1556
Founder of the Society of Jesus

The President’s Cabinet

More than 40 years ago The President’s Cabinet was founded to recognize annual supporters at various levels whose outstanding generosity and loyalty reflect a strong commitment to University of Detroit Mercy. 

The support of these donors provides scholarships for students, rewards distinguished faculty, enriches many of our academic programs and enhances the experience of all our students.

Leadership support from President’s Cabinet members remains vital to our ability to provide our students with a quality, student-centered education in the Jesuit and Mercy traditions thus helping to shape future graduates who will go on to lead and serve in their professions and communities.

Annual membership in The President’s Cabinet is based on the cumulative total of all gifts of cash, pledge payments, gifts of securities and gifts-in-kind with an appraised value received during the University’s fiscal year (July 1- June 30).  Commitments of corporate matching gifts will also be counted toward individual membership.
