Giving Opportunities

Russian ballet. Children's theater. Original opera. Film festivals. Thought leaders, artists, and directors from the Upper Peninsula to sub-Saharan Africa: your gift brings world-class entertainment to residents and visitors of all ages in the western Upper Peninsula. Your gift impacts students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

Your gift grows. Because you help cultivate the capacity of people to make art with and for the greater community—from critical technologies and infrastructure to creative aspects.

Thank you, Friends of the Rozsa and Class Act donors, for making a world-class public research university a cultural beacon where smart art thrives. We couldn't do it without you!

"The Rozsa's generosity and their commitment to Michigan Tech's students was summed up in one simple request they made — 'Please let those students know we think of them all as our grandchildren."Glenn Mroz, President Emeritus, Michigan Technological University
