It’s as easy an opening your wallet. MSU, in an attempt to raise money, has launched a “naming opportunity” to attract private donations. For a set amount of money, individuals can have buildings, classrooms, halls or even equipment named after them. It isn’t cheap. For a contribution of $5 million, a donor can have his or her name branded on the College of Health Sciences and Human Services. Classrooms in most buildings run about $25,000. For an endowed chair, however, a donor will have to fork over $750,000.
