About

Giving Day contributions of every size make a major difference! Support one of these projects today or give to another area that helps support WSU students. 

President's Enhancement Fund

Today only, once 20 gifts are made to the President's Enhancement Fund, a generous gift of $10,000 from Dr. Margaret E. Winters and Dr. Geoffrey S. Nathan will be unlocked.

The President's Enhancement Fund is used at the discretion of the President to fund strategic initiatives that further Wayne State's mission. Your gift today will help fuel our collective impact on Wayne State's future!

Student Emergency Fund 

The Student Emergency Fund provides short-term financial assistance to help cover essential expenses for Wayne State students facing temporary hardship due to an unexpected situation - such as emergency medical care or a death in the family. The funds are awarded to students in increments between $50 and $1,500 based on need and availability of funding.

W Food Pantry

The W Food Pantry provides currently enrolled Wayne State students in need of food assistance with supplemental food and additional resources to enhance student success. Additional items such as toiletries and feminine hygiene items help reduce other barriers to student success. In its third year of operation, the pantry is able to provide these resources to students at no cost thanks to generous donors. Every $1 donated translates to $10 worth of food. A $25 gift today is worth $250 of food for students in need. 

General Scholarship Fund

First-generation college students, aspiring scholars and working professionals build successful futures through access to a world-class education at Wayne State. Scholarship funds provide the critical support many students need to enroll in Wayne State degree programs — and to remain at Wayne State until they graduate. Students who leave college before completing their degrees cite needing to work as the primary reason, and a majority say greater financial assistance would have made the biggest difference in completing their studies. Your gift to the General Scholarship Fund will help students access the resources they need to finish their degrees.
