Enriching the learning experience, equipping students for life-long success

‘Jacket Giving Day is one of the most important days of the year for students at MSU Billings. It is the day when our Yellowjacket family comes together in a concerted effort to help fund campus needs for MSU Billings and its students. We thank all our donors – without whom ‘Jacket Giving Day would not be possible – for generously supporting the heartbeat of the university.

Last year’s ‘Jacket Giving Day featured over 30 campaigns, including scholarships and program specific needs. Thanks to the generosity of 422 donors who participated, we were able to raise $118,767.

I encourage you to read Taylor Rochford’s story in this issue. It is the perfect illustration of how your donations impact students. In the sidebar you’ll learn about last year’s top three campaigns funded through ‘Jacket Giving Day. We raised around $16,700 for these projects, enriching the student experience and better equipping students for life-long success.

I cannot say it enough: Because of you, our students can attend college and realize their dreams. The impact you make on this one day can last a lifetime. With your support, students’ lives change and our communities thrive.

As you might imagine, this year has been particularly hard on our students. Many lost jobs as a result of the pandemic, making it more difficult for them to complete their education. Scholarships are always vital to our students — now more than ever! Would you consider donating today?

Be part of ‘Jacket Giving Day, February 25, 2021. We need your support!

Again, thank you for all you do to make MSUB a place where students can learn and grow for generations to come.
