Greetings Alumni and Friends:
MSU Black Alumni Inc. had plans to Celebrate its 40th Anniversary in a BIG way. However, COVID-19 required that we celebrate via social media, recognizing our Scholarship Recipients and Distinguished Alumni Awardees. But hold on, you can still celebrate our 40th year until Homecoming 41 in 2021.
A ”40 for 40” campaign to celebrate the MSU Black Alumni 40th Anniversary has been established and will be in effect from July 2020 through July 2021. Our goal is to raise a minimum of $40,000.
We are asking all alumni to contribute at least $40 dollars or multiples there of that includes the number 40, such as $40, $140, $240, $400, $440, $1040, $4,000, etc.
We recognize that some alumni may want to do more, and we welcome and encourage you to be creative and generous in your giving. For example, your “40 for 40” contribution can be a one-time donation, monthly, quarterly, or however your budget and love for Michigan State University Black Alumni’s future leads you.
Also know the following:
All funds raised will go towards our MSUBA Scholarship Endowed Fund
All Contributor’s names only will be included in the 2021 program journal
And finally, Contributor’s names only will be included in the newsletter following the 2021 Homecoming.
Donations should be sent:
