Our heartfelt condolences to the MSU and East Lansing community, and all those affected by the gun violence tragedy of February 13. If you are looking for a way to help the students of MSU, here are a few options for you to consider.
Spartan Strong Fund: The Spartan Strong Fund has been created by MSU to support a variety of emerging needs related to the response and future support of students, staff, and the community as we move forward and heal. To donate to the fund, click here.
Cards for Students: In a show of support to the students of our UUMC congregation and Wesley Foundation, we are asking you to provide a handwritten note of encouragement and support. These will be shared with our students, along with a gift card to Fresh Thyme. Please keep your message uplifting, and do not dwell on details of the events. Notes should be in an unsealed envelope and can be dropped in the basket provided in the Gathering Space. If you would like to make a donation to offset the expenses of the gift cards, you may place a check in the offering plate marked “Fresh Thyme Gift Cards” or send a Venmo donation (@UUMCDonation) with the same memo.
Wesley Foundation “23 for 2023” Fundraiser: To celebrate our students this year, we wanted to ask everyone to show their support! We’re looking for 23 individuals to donate $20 to help our growing campus ministry to MSU students and other Lansing-area young adults. Check donations can be made payable to MSU Wesley Foundation with “23 for 2023 Fundraiser” in the memo line. You can also make a donation through PayPal by clicking here.
