Make a Difference Giving to Michigan State University

Loyalty Levels

make a difference, give annually

ANNUAL GIVING is the lifeline for building and sustaining Michigan State.

Every year, every gift makes a difference. One person, one contribution at a time. When you give annually you help MSU maintain its historic vision—opening doors to a quality education and fueling the bold drive to find big solutions for Michigan and the world.

Loyalty Levels of giving

These giving levels recognize donors who make giving annually to MSU a priority.

$100 – $499 per year
$500 – $999 per year

Recognition begins July 1 each year and is based on gifts made during MSU’s previous fiscal year (July 1 – June 30).

Spartan Loyal and Spartan Proud donors receive:

  • Annual recognition materials
  • SPARTAN – Michigan State University Alumni Magazine 
  • Access to special MSU programming and events
Loyal & Proud Spartan


Gifts made at the loyalty levels have far-reaching impact. They give MSU the financial flexibility to respond to what’s needed right now to support student success.

  • A $100 gift can: provide text books, supplies, or meals for students struggling to make ends meet.
  • A $500 gift can: bring speakers and programs to campus or help support a student in study abroad.


Most importantly, your gifts come together to provide extraordinary impact for current and future Spartans! Here are a few things your gifts achieved recently:
