The MSU Floriculture Research and Outreach Fund is an endowment created by Erik Runkle in 2005 using revenue generated from off-campus educational events. Companies have since made donations to support and invest in applied floriculture research and extension at MSU. Disbursements from this fund are used to support a range of activities, including graduate student travel to participate in national and international meetings, floriculture outreach activities, page charges for scientific publications, professional development of staff, etc. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to support MSU Floriculture now and in the future. Visit the MSU Development website directly or contact Erik Runkle at 517-353-0350 for giving opportunities.
Information generated from industry-driven floriculture research at MSU is supported by donations and gifts from private horticulture companies and the following granting agencies. We thank everyone for their support; without their generosity, applied floriculture research at MSU would not be possible.
