A Catalytic Gift to Support CoLab Studio

October 12, 2022 News, Uncategorized

On Monday, October 10, Michigan State University Federal Credit Union (MSUFCU) announced a $5.5M gift to advance three Michigan State University arts programs over the next five years. The announcement was made during a ceremony at Michigan State University Museum. This major gift is a continuation of MSUFCU’s investment in arts and cultural at MSU. The award will support three initiatives: the MSUFCU Arts Power Up Endowment, which will fund two pilot programs: the MSUFCU Arts Power Up Arts Residencies at the STEAMpower Project, and the MSUFCU Arts Power Up to Start-Up program; the College of Music’s MSUFCU DREAM Fund (Detroit Regional Engagement and Access Music Endowment); and MSU Museum’s new CoLab Studio.

We are immensely grateful for MSUFCU’s substantial investment in the mission of the CoLab Studio, a division for innovation and experimentation at MSU Museum. This catalytic gift will enable new methods for designing and implementing novel, transient and experimental programming, informal learning, and community engagement.
