BOT 802: Gifts and Grants-Acceptance

Gifts and grants represent a vast resource for the future of Michigan State University. Certain gifts and grants may, however, be inconsistent with University needs or require additional support for which resources are too limited to permit proper administration of the gift. The President shall, therefore, promptly evaluate, or cause to be evaluated, any gift or grant tendered, to determine acceptability. If approved for acceptance, it shall be promptly acknowledged with appreciation.

The President shall cause a report of gifts and grants received to be presented to the Board of Trustees for acceptance at each regular meeting of the Board. Formal acceptance of all gifts and grants shall be by Board action.

Enacted: 9/26/80
