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.
"Gena was a beautiful girl who laughed and giggled, loved music, and enjoyed going places. Gena’s special education teachers were so important in enriching her experience, as well as ours, and so we wanted to help make sure that students who want to work with children with disabilities have the financial opportunity to do so," said Dr. Hilary Ratner. "Our additional commitment will now allow even more students to fulfill their aspirations to become special education teachers."
