Give Green Day Sponsor


Dick Bush (’70, Agriculture and Natural Resources) and his wife Patty McGuigan are passionate about MSU and what the university has done for them. They also want to inspire others to support MSU so they have stepped up to be the 2018 Give Green Day sponsors. To encourage others to make a gift on November 27, Dick and Patty have committed $50,000 in matching funds to be used during special giving challenges on Give Green Day.

Interim President Engler has also agreed to allocate an additional $100,000 to further leverage Dick and Patty’s generous gift. So, the more others give, the more challenge money will be awarded! Follow #GiveGreenDay for announcements and ways to make your gift go further.
