Wayne State University

Aim Higher


We're incredibly fortunate to have such supportive alumni and friends.

Through their efforts, we're able to provide students with opportunities to achieve their dreams.

That means scholarships, endowments and other support that goes directly to students, giving them a true opportunity to succeed.

Reasons to Give

There are many reasons to give to the business school:

  • Give back to your alma mater
  • Provide resources for a student to experience the same opportunities you did at Wayne State
  • Honor a loved one and preserve their memory

We invite you to share your reasons with us, using the button on the right. Whatever your reason, it's easier than ever to give to the business school.

Ways to Give

You can make your gift online (use the button on the right) or mail checks (address below).

There are many ways to give and multiple types of gifts. Use the navigation on the left to learn more about the ways to give. And please feel free to contact our development office (info below), who are more than happy to help.

No matter how you give, your contributions advance the business school, which is increasingly important in today's competitive environment.

Your gift also helps grow the alumni base with skilled professionals who are ready to meet today's challenges head on.
