EAST LANSING, Mich. — MSU Federal Credit Union’s (MSUFCU’s) Foundation, the Desk Drawer Fund, recently celebrated its first monetary donation from Sergent Results Group, a consulting firm providing learning and training sessions on a variety of organizational topics.


“We are thankful to Sergent Results Group for their generous donation, and we are thrilled that their donation represents our very first monetary support of the Desk Drawer Fund,” said Whitney Anderson-Harrell, Desk Drawer Fund Executive Director. “We appreciate their support of the Foundation’s goal to empower communities by investing in local nonprofits.”


The Desk Drawer Fund was established to further MSUFCU’s dedication to its local community. The Foundation provides support for numerous nonprofit initiatives across the sectors of five philanthropic pillars: Arts & Culture; Stable Housing; Empowering Youth; Financial Education; and Fostering Entrepreneurialism.


"We inspire people to think about self, organization, and community as a system,” said Dennis Sergent, Sergent Results Group President. “This is even more powerful as the organizations we work with develop, grow, and succeed. The Desk Drawer Fund is poised to make a significant impact in our community and is the perfect venue for us to support financially and help even more nonprofits.”
