The New Billman Music Pavilion and Renovations

Private gifts to the College of Music have a tremendous impact on the lives of our talented and hard-working students and faculty, and today our best opportunity to support them is through a contribution to the Billman Music Pavilion and renovations to existing facililities. Learn more about the campaign and our exciting state-of-the-art spaces currently in the works.


Why Give to the MSU College of Music?

Your donations support student scholarships, fellowships, program endowments, equipment, guest artists, operations, and many other crucial areas that make the College of Music an exemplary place of learning.

Although public institutions like Michigan State receive a significant portion of their funding from state government appropriations and student tuition, these dollars are limited. Private financial support has become an essential source of support as we seek to maintain programs and create new initiatives.

Your commitment makes the difference. Cash gifts go to work immediately to enhance the education of our students, while endowments and other planned gifts are investments in the educational opportunities offered by the College of Music well into the future.
