Thank you for your interest in giving to the Department of Geosciences. Alumni and friends help us achieve our full potential in the classroom, in the field, in the lab, and in student recruiting. A variety of giving options are available for donors at all levels. The MSU Foundation handles all non-athletic gifts to the university, and you can designate that your contribution go directly to the fund of your choice in the Department of Geosciences (listed below). In addition, the Department of Geosciences and the MSU Foundation work very closely together to help donors set up endowments that honor alumni through student scholarships and awards. Our department has experienced some great success over the years, and much of that has been made possible by generous donations. Alumni and friends are always welcome to visit the department and we look forward to meeting our donors and introducing them to our faculty and students. We very much appreciate your interest and the Department Head, Dr. William H. Cooke III, the faculty, and our office staff, all stand ready to help with any inquiries associated with making gifts to the Department of Geosciences.
Please visit the Giving Page for the College of Arts & Sciences or the MSU Foundation to discover more benefits and to make your contribution today. We thank you.
