President's Circle


Welcome to the President's Circle

You’ve made a significant impact by giving to Montana State University and we want to sincerely thank you for your contribution. President Cruzado cares deeply about ensuring the success of our students, advancing scholarship, and promoting research that matters in our daily lives. Your philanthropic generosity makes that mission a reality!

The President's Circle is our way of recognizing your commitment to MSU. By giving $2,500 or more in a calendar year, you have had a positive influence on the lives of many. To recognize the dedication and support Faculty and Staff give to Montana State University through their career at the University, the President’s Circle recognizes Faculty and Staff donors to MSU that give $1,200 or more in a single calendar year.

Through your gifts—whether to one fund or several across campus—you have made an investment in the future of your MSU community. We hope you’ll enjoy being part of the President’s Circle community.

As an expression of our gratitude, President Cruzado and the MSU Alumni Foundation would like to provide you with meaningful information, direct access, and unique experiences that have been collected and crafted exclusively for the President’s Circle.

  • Wear the official President’s Circle Pin with pride! This magnetic pin features the cupola from Montana Hall where President Cruzado’s office resides. The pin is included in your welcome packet.
  • Respond with your feedback! We value your opinion and request that you return the response card enclosed in your welcome packet with your input about the information, access, and experiences that you value.
  • Keep this page bookmarked for up-to-date information and to learn about exclusive events being offered.
  • Get additional insight about what’s happening in your MSU community by reading the President’s Circle e-newsletter.
  • Use the parking cards provided in your welcome packet to make it easier when you come back to visit campus.
  • Contact your dedicated campus liaison to access the MSU community. Kelley McGee, in the Office of the Annual Fund, is available to assist you with questions about events, MSU updates, and supporting the university.
