Buy a Shirt, Support UM Students

May 20, 2020

Four different shirts displaying Griz pride

The University of Montana has partnered with Blue 84 to bring you a limited-edition collection of tees and a hoodie for two great causes. These uniquely designed products, featuring our beloved UM brand and the popular Life is Good brand have been created with Griz Nation community spirit in mind, while proceeds from your purchase will benefit current and future Grizzlies in need.

UM and the UM Foundation have established an Emergency Student Support Fund to provide assistance to students who need it the most, as  the COVID-19 crisis has created financial hardships for many of our UM students. They are often working one, two or even three jobs to pay for rent, insurance, child care, tuition and food. For many students, their summer jobs have been hindered as well. This fund will have a great impact on our students’ dreams.

Proceeds from the purchase of the “In This Together” tee and hoodie will be donated to the UM Emergency Student Support Fund.

UM’s graduating class of 2020 has been through so much these past few months and will go down in UM history as one of the strongest, most resilient classes of all time. Their perseverance inspires us and we know they are ready to change the world. These shirts bring a little Montana humor in the face of adversity and provide a way to commemorate this unique time.

Proceeds from the purchase of the “Virtually Tee” and “Quaranteam Strong” tee will be donated to Alumni Legacy Scholarships, aiding children and grandchildren of UM alumni to honor the legacy of the Griz Family.

These charitable shirts are only available through June 3, 2020, and will be produced and shipped immediately after that date, through our UM  licensing partner, Blue 84.

These shirts are only available for purchase through June 3, 2020, and will be produced and shipped immediately after that date.
