Help Support the MSGC

Developing programs and caring for and using the collections of the Michigan Stained Glass Census all demand substantial underwriting. While Michigan State University through the Matrix provides the basic space and utilities for our collections and activities, the majority of the program development and maintenance costs must be raised through grants, endowments, and donations.

Contributions to the Michigan Stained Glass Census qualify for tax-deductible charitable contributions as well as recognition in Michigan State University's gift honoraries. Contributions may also be eligible for some employee corporate matching-gift programs.
