Make a Difference Giving To Michigan State University

Estate Giving

Linda E. Landon was an MSU librarian, a beloved resource for students and faculty from 1891 - 1932. She also was the first female instructor on campus. The Landon Society honors individuals and families who have remembered Michigan State University through charitable estate and gift planning.

To qualify for membership in the Landon Society, donors may select any of the following gift plans:

  • Charitable bequest through a will/revocable living trust
  • Charitable gift annuity
  • Charitable remainder trust
  • Charitable lead trust

Donors also qualify for membership in the Landon Society when they name MSU as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, retirement plan, or deed of a personal residence or vacation home with retained life estate to Michigan State University.
