What do the project giving levels represent?

Momentum project giving levels represent suggested donation amounts with a description of the types of things you will help make possible within each campaign. Individual gifts made on Momentum to University of Detroit Mercy projects combine with other gifts to support the overall project needs. Your contribution might not be allocated directly to a specifically described item; your gift will go where it will do the most good by combining it with the gifts of others to achieve the overall project goals.
