MSU Divestment Campaign


don’t give—Pledge!

We are a group of Michigan State University alumni, students, and faculty working to divest the university’s endowment from fossil fuels and fossil fuel infrastructure.  We are asking you to pledge an amount you are willing to donate once MSU removes all capital from fossil fuel investments.  MSU’s endowment has millions of dollars invested in the future of fossil fuels. This money perpetuates the industry—allowing for the lobbing for protective legislation, dissemination of misinformation, and the blocking of productive policy efforts. We’re here to change that!

We Have the Power to Impact Our Future. Here’s how you can help.

Our Alumni Divestment Campaign is a plan to present the MSU administration with consequences for delaying action, while also offering an incentive for ethical change. First, we are organizing alumni to stop donating to the university until it removes all capital from fossil fuel investments. Once the university enacts the divestment, all pledge money for this campaign will be donated. Many schools, including the University or Michigan, have already divested from fossil fuels —why not MSU? Help us make our alma mater follow through with a commitment to truly GO GREEN!

Pledge today

Add your name and pledge below to support our fight against climate change!

Your privacy is important to us, and DivestMSU will not share your name or personal information beyond our lists of supporters to be presented to the University. Upon divestment, DivestMSU will contact those who pledge, and will suggest your donation be made to MSU within 30 days. However, a pledge of support does not create any obligation of funds. No funds will be collected by DivestMSU.
