John A. Hannah Society
John A. Hannah Society recognizes the generosity of individuals who make a commitment between $50,000 and $99,999 to MSU or a documented planned gift of at least $100,000.
The society honors the memory of President Hannah, who served the University for forty-six years, twenty-eight of them as MSU's twelfth president. He is revered by many and credited with guiding the University through its period of greatest physical and philosophical growth.
Recognition at the John A. Hannah Society level typically includes all gifts received prior to making a pledge at this level and may include company matching contributions. Pledges are fulfilled within five years with a minimum annual contribution of $5,000 or 20% of the pledge balance, whichever is greater. Planned gifts are documented in writing. A planned gift may be combined with cash gifts and pledges to qualify for Hannah Society recognition.
It is MSU's privilege to offer each Hannah Society household with a recognition in an issue of the MSU Alumni Magazine, complimentary quarterly issues of the MSU Alumni Magazine if not received through membership in the MSU Alumni Association, and a donor-focused newsletter called Developments. Donors may also be recognized by college or unit-based programs to which they contribute.
