Ways to Support the GLRC

Top facilities at the Great Lakes Research Center provide a framework imperative to great ideas and great solutions. Scholarships, fellowships, and endowed professorships help bring experts—and their students—together for freshwater research on the shores of the Laurentian Great Lakes Basin.

We are grateful for your generosity and desire to honor a family member, pay tribute to a friend, or commemorate someone who provided inspiration. Your gifts keep us on the forefront of knowledge and advance research, education, and outreach at the GLRC.

Buy a Fish

Alumni and friends are invited to show their support of fresh water research, education and outreach at Michigan Tech. The Buy a Fish campaign allows individuals to purchase a personalized acrylic fish that is creatively displayed on a donor wall located in the first floor lobby.

Funds committed through the Buy a Fish campaign will support student development opportunities, new research, and facilities improvements.

The fish measure 10 ($250+ donation), 12 ($500+ donation) and 14 ($1,000+ donation) inches in length and will be attached to the display using brushed silver standoffs at varying depths. The wall display is constructed of cabinet-grade birch veneer with a vinyl graphic overlay adding a subtle wave pattern. The fish will be arranged in groups or “schools” based on the giving year.

Use our online giving form and specify your two lines of personalized text in the special instructions box. (Leave the code that auto-fills in the box as well - that will make sure your donation goes directly to the GLRC.)
