For Us

  • We benefit greatly from discounts/donations of materials (such as aluminum sheets, fiberglass, resin, scuba gear, etc) ... and we love freebies!

  • Direct monetary donations are awesome because we can put them toward whatever we need at the time. All checks must be made payable to University of Michigan.

  • Industry engineers are repositories of valuable information for our design leads and student engineers to learn from. So we like your design engineers' contact information so we can send you our questions.

For You

  • Michigan HPS is a 501(c)(3) qualified nonprofit, so any charitable donation to HPS is eligible as a tax-deductible write-off.

  • We will mention you in regular social media posts with messages of thanks for the community to recognize your donation.

  • We send you an update each semester regarding our progress on the sub and what we're doing with your donated materials/funds.

  • Top recruiters consistently give us glowing feedback on our students' performance in engineering firms. We organize events for your exclusive access to recruiting them for internships and full-time positions.
