Support the Student-Led Social Innovation Movement

The OptimizeMSU registered student organization helps incubate student-led projects and ideas. The group offers mentorship, community support, and funding. OptimizeMSU strives to equip students with the right resources to take their ideas and turn them into products, non-profits, or startups focused on sustainable social impact.

Donate to Help Students Innovate Socially

The goal of OptimizeMSU is to incubate student innovation projects. Students who participate in OptimizeMSU take on social and environmental projects, with the assistance and support of mentors, alumni, and staff. Your donations to this CrowdPower campaign will serve as seed funds to support student members of OptimizeMSU who are taking on social innovation projects with the intent to make their community—and the world—a more just and sustainable place.

Start a Movement

The money raised will be used to start a socially conscious innovation movement at MSU. OptimizeMSU will launch, grow, and develop into the first ever group of MSU students committed to social innovation.
