Giving

Each day, the Oakland University School of Music, Theatre and Dance is alive with the sights
and sounds of performing arts education. Whether alum or friend, you are a member of the
“MTD Family” and we are seeking your assistance in supporting the education of the newest
generation of our students, as well as generations to come. To his end, we have organized the
Friends of MTD.

The Friends of MTD will provide scholarships and program support for SMTD students. Giving
through the Friends of MTD is the ideal opportunity for alumni and supporters to celebrate the
proud history of music, theatre, and dance at Oakland University as we enter our second year
as a school. We would not be where we are today without each of you and invite you to help us
take our next steps as a school. Increased scholarship funding will allow us to attract even more
outstanding students and having scholarship support will enable our students to focus more of
their energies on school. Resources for program support will help us provide increasingly
varied, high-quality learning experiences for all our students.

There are a variety of MTD funds to which you may contribute annually either as a one-time gift
or as a recurring gift over a specific number of months of your choice within a year. Every gift
has the potential to make a tremendous difference in the educational experience of our
students, and every donor to our funds will be identified as Friend of MTD. Donors giving for
three consecutive years will become members of the Oakland University Black and Gold
Society.

These are the primary funds of SMTD. You may designate your gift to one or more funds. If you
would like to designate your gift to more than one fund, click on one of the finds below and edit
Selected Designations to add additional funds. You may search for the fund(s) by name or scroll
down the College of Arts and Sciences funds. You will be able to indicate the percentage of your
gift that should go to each fund.
