staff16 We are the student-led voice of the Annual Fund. As current MSU students, we are personally invested in ensuring that Michigan State University remains among the top universities in the world. We are also dedicated to maintaining strong relationships with our Spartan family including alumni, faculty, parents, and friends of the university.

Making dreams a reality

The Michigan State University Annual Fund encourages alumni, students, parents and friends to recall and renew their Michigan State University ties by making gifts on an annual basis. These gifts strengthen MSU's ability to serve students, faculty and staff through scholarships, teaching innovations and updating technology.

When a gift is made to the Michigan State University Annual Fund, it is not only contributing to MSU's ability to positively impact the lives of students but also assisting in the preservation of high quality education for future generations of Spartans. A goal for Michigan State University is to have the #1 alumni participation rate in the Big 10. Alumni participation has a direct impact on the University's national ranking. These national rankings allow us to attract the best and brightest students and enhance the value of all degrees received from Michigan State University.

The support to the Annual Fund goes directly to the college or department of choice, as a personal expression of the commitment to the University, its students, programs and goals. Our main campaigns include the Essential Edge Campaign, College Campaign, and Parents' Fund. Every gift is sincerely appreciated and will make a difference in the lives of students and faculty.

"Spartans Today, Alumni Forever"

"Although I didn't receive a scholarship when I was a student, I know private gifts to the university made most of my extracurricular activities possible. I'm proud to give back and support my Spartan family."
