The college has a long history of a teaching, research and urban service mission. To continue our work in these three vital areas, private philanthropy is critical. Without the private support of generous donors who have established endowed or annual scholarships, many of our students would have to drop out or stop their academic programs.
Ways to Give
There are many types of gifts and ways to give to Wayne State University. Every gift to support Wayne State University is important, fulfilling an important need and helping to support the university's success in achieving excellence in education, research and community engagement.
As the only urban research institution in Michigan, a gift to Wayne State strengthens students, faculty and the community. The support that bolsters research and academic studies results in impacts felt far beyond the university's classrooms and laboratories, yet each gift is meaningful and important to individuals working to pursue their dreams and change lives.
MAKE A GIFT NOW.
"[Scholarships] are very important because otherwise I wouldn’t be able to graduate. Especially this last year. I was about to drop out because of my financial hardship. With the Crossing the Finish Line Scholarship, I was able to stay afloat. I am so thankful."
