Give Green Day supported multiple MSU projects, including two Engineering funds.

On Tuesday, March 12, Spartans once again showed the world what an extraordinary difference they can make when they come together over a common cause.

The eighth annual Give Green Day campaign raised $1.46 million—the second highest amount in Give Green Day’s history—thanks to 6,905 gifts.

Of the 6,905 gifts received on this year’s Give Green Day, nearly 60 percent—4,089—came from alumni.

First-time donors were the next largest group of donors with 1,682 gifts, followed by faculty, staff and retirees of MSU who collectively made 1,295 gifts. Students made a total of 269 gifts.

Gifts came from Spartans as close by as right here in East Lansing, to Spartans in every U.S. state—nearly $975,000 came from Michiganders alone!—to those in places as far away as Australia, Indonesia and Nigeria.

Kim Tobin, vice president for University Advancement, expressed gratitude for Give Green Day’s donors.

“We are so grateful to Spartans across the globe for making a gift on Give Green Day in support of their passions. Each and every day, inspired philanthropy provides our students, faculty and staff the opportunity to tackle some of the world's biggest challenges.  We cannot thank our supporters enough for strengthening their work through life-changing scholarships and resources for students, enhancing research, and expanding important campus initiatives.”
