EAST LANSING, MI— MSUFCU has announced a $1,000,000 donation to Michigan State University’s Wharton Center for Performing Arts for the MSU Federal Credit Union Broadway at Wharton Center Endowment. This gift will bring world-renowned performers and highly-acclaimed Broadway shows to MSU’s campus to provide MSU students and faculty and the Greater Lansing community with exciting cultural and entertainment experiences. Engagement opportunities such as special talks, educational opportunities, and community events will also be made available as part of the endowment.

 

MSUFCU has been the title sponsor of the popular MSU Federal Credit Union Broadway at Wharton Center series for close to ten years, and this new endowment reaffirms the Credit Union’s commitment to this program.

At MSUFCU, we are committed to making a positive impact on as many people’s lives as possible and investing in our community to help create a place where people are proud to live, work, and visit. We are thrilled to announce MSUFCU’s continued commitment to the Wharton Center with the MSU Federal Credit Union Broadway at Wharton Center Endowment and are proud to support programs that help ensure Mid-Michigan is a place full of vibrant arts and entertainment.”
