Wayne State has been an institute of opportunity since it was founded in 1868. Giving Day connects the entire community — on campus, in Detroit and around the world — during this period of school spirit and generosity.

On April 13, we invite you to join forces with fellow Warriors to help fund the area of the university that means the most to you.

Giving Day supports our deserving students, brilliant faculty, groundbreaking research and critical urban programs — and donations in support of the event go farther thanks to matching fund challenges made possible by key university supporters.

Last fall, Wayne State University alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends showed amazing generosity — raising more than $950K dollars from more than 1,500 donors.

Wayne State is grateful for all who participated last year and we’re grateful in advance for those who plan to participate again this year. Your giving stories are inspiring and prove that when we Give Green, Wayne State’s future will Be Gold.

Get ready to make a bold impact with your gift on April 13 by visiting
