Your Gift Matters

As the nation’s pioneer land-grant university, MSU was designed to change higher education forever—to make a better state, a better nation, a better world. That’s still our purpose as we advance knowledge and transform lives through research and discovery, life-changing opportunities for students and partnerships with communities.

A planned gift is one such way to advance the common good—an opportunity to make a lasting impact and benefit Spartans in the future. In order to achieve our full potential, we need to empower our students and faculty to propel this great university forward through its people and with you at its side. Learn how you can find a charitable plan that lets you provide for your family and support MSU.
