The FAM Teammates Assistance Program
Do you need assistance?
Do you know a teammate in need?
We help our Teammates when they need help most
Michigan Football tradition is built on teamwork created from the selfless dedication of every player and coach. It’s what Michigan Football asks of every Michigan Man.
FAM, the Football Alumni of Michigan, carries on that tradition and is an extension of the Team you were part of during your days at Michigan.
Within FAM there is TAP, the Teammates Assistance Program. TAP is built on teamwork, too. Being part of a team means looking after one another, and helping one another when we need help most.
That’s why TAP and the TAP Network exist.
The TAP Network
TAP asks you to join the TAP Network. As a member, you’ll be one of the people we contact when one of our teammates needs help, the kind of help you can provide.
The TAP Network is not limited to former players and coaches. Anyone can be a TAP Network member. We’re looking for people with a wide range of knowledge, abilities, and talents, from various disciplines, including:
Growing our TAP Network by adding caring people with diverse abilities in various geographic locations will help keep our Michigan Brothers strong. To quote Kipling (a Lloyd Carr favorite), “For the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack.”
help is here.
TAP provides confidential assistance and support to eligible FAM members as a result of medical, financial, or mental health conditions.
If you’re a former Michigan player who needs help, please click here so we can help you.
Do you know a teammate in need, but is just too proud to ask? TAP provides a confidential way to tell us.
The TAP Fund
Your fully tax-deductible donations to the TAP Fund help us keep the Michigan Football Alumni healthy and strong.
The TAP Fund provides valuable latitude for how we support Teammates in need. Always, our first option is to deliver assistance via the TAP Network. When such an option isn’t available, direct and indirect financial support is considered.
If you wish to designate your donation for a particular purpose, please indicate that purpose in the comments. All other donations will go toward helping Teammates in need.
How You Can Help
If you know of a member of our Team in need, speak up for them.
Join the TAP Network. Donate your time and talents to keep our Michigan Football brothers healthy and strong.
Fully tax-deductible donations can be made to the TAP Fund in any denomination.
As part of FAM, it is TAP’s policy to keep the information received regarding anyone requesting or receiving TAP support CONFIDENTIAL, unless specific permission is granted by the intended recipient.
