Donor Recognition

Donor Recognition

The College of Engineering believes strongly in the need to recognize and honor our major contributors. This section of the development website includes descriptions of the various Michigan State University giving clubs and societies. As a responsible steward of your donations, the College of Engineering provides a Donor Bill of Rights for all our donors.

Donor Societies

Michigan State University has established several distinguished giving clubs to recognize those who demonstrate a sincere interest in and support of University programs, to create a pattern of substantial giving, to ensure significant annual support by alumni and friends, and to set an example for others to give.

For more information about these donor clubs or how to support the College of Engineering, please see the full listing.
