The 2022 Give Green Day was very successful for the CANR community, with nearly $50,000 raised for various projects and programs representing the college, AgBioResearch and MSU Extension. Thanks to all who participated in and helped promote this year’s event held on March 15!
The college had two Give Green Day campaigns, both which exceeded their goals.
CANR Whole Student Success Fund – $19,365 from 96 donors
Donors gave $19,365 to the CANR Whole Student Success Fund, including lead gifts from CANR alumni Valerie Wright and Andrew Schweitzer, to exceed the initial $10,000 goal. We received an additional $1,675 in university matching funds and bonuses, totaling more than $21,000 to support our CANR students. These gifts mean we will have the resources available to support our students who have emergency needs, to create opportunities to ensure the college is a leader and at the forefront of change, and to help make us a better and stronger college for generations of Spartans to come.
4-H Learning Experience Sponsorship Fund – $5,265 from 52 donors
Donors gave $5,265 to the 4-H Learning Experience Sponsorship Fund, surpassing the $5,000 goal. With an additional $1,400 in university bonuses and matching funds, a grand total of $6,665 was raised to support 4-H. This fund helps to reduce the cost for Michigan youth to participate in a variety of 4-H learning experiences across the state and nation. These gifts make a difference in the lives of 4-H youth, both today and tomorrow, by helping to grow current and future leaders.
Several additional CANR units also held CrowdPower campaigns on Give Green Day. A majority of these campaigns are still accepting gifts:
- Institute of Water Research at MSU – $350 (35% of $1,000 goal)
- Michigan FFA - $2,735 (27% of $10,000 goal)
- MSU Student Organic Farm - $1,380 (27% of $5,000 goal)
- Under-Served School Field Trips to MSU Tollgate Farm - $1,300 (26% of $5,000 goal)
Thanks to all who contributed and for your continued support and investment in these funds and Michigan State University!
