MSU Alumni Foundation Guidelines

Registered Student Organization Foundation Guidelines

We are excited to announce a new partnership we have formed with the MSU Alumni Foundation.  The Foundation will now receive charitable contributions on behalf of registered student organizations. As most of our student clubs are not non-profit organizations, this service is provided to help registered student organizations receive donations from funders who desire or require donations be made through a non-profit entity.  Donors who make contributions in support of a qualified registered student organization through the MSU Alumni Foundation will be provided with the appropriate document to substantiate the tax deductibility of the contribution

Please read the guidelines above THOROUGHLY if you plan to utilize this new option.  PLEASE NOTE:  There are a few student organizations that are not eligible to use this program due to the nature of the club, so please review these guidelines carefully to determine if your club is or is not a fit.
