Student Philanthropy Council

The Student Philanthropy Council (SPC) is a group of student volunteers who are dedicated to sharing the impact and importance of private support on Michigan Tech's campus. SPC gives students a close-up look at University fundraising operations through direct involvement in philanthropic marketing and campaigns.

SPC’s goals are to provide a student perspective on giving back, to promote awareness of the ways private gifts impact student life, and to establish a legacy of philanthropy that enhances the future of Michigan Tech.
