“Give Green Day is Michigan State University’s participation in the national day of giving,” says Lisa Parker, the MSU Alumni Association’s senior director of alumni engagement and professional initiatives. “It’s an opportunity for alumni and friends to support student-related funds at the university.”
The ultimate goal of Give Green Day is to engage alumni and friends in an online effort to make real-time, fast, easy, and secure gifts in support of students.
Kathleen Deneau is senior director of development at MSU. She talks about the “plethora of funds” from which to choose and that there’s likely one “that will resonate with everyone. But all of them will make a difference in students’ lives.”

Parker says the best way to engage with Give Green Day on November 28 is to follow the hastag #GiveGreenDay on your favorite social media platform.
