Donor Spotlight Elizabeth Buc
“Although I attended three separate universities, my support goes to Wayne State because of the impact it has had on my career, the relationships with faculty and others that were formed, and the important educational role it will continue to play for future students.”
Donor Spotlight Mildred Kaye
“I have greatly enjoyed meeting the students who receive scholarships from our fund. I recommend that everyone consider creating an endowed scholarship fund!”
Donor Spotlight Marie A. Tront
“Attending Wayne State was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I want to be sure that the intellectual stimulation of an urban university is there for future generations. By naming Wayne State in my trust, I can make a larger gift than I would be able to by check.”
Donor Spotlight Mel Janowitz
“I am a strong believer in charitable gift annuities as a pension supplement. I have two at Wayne. The interest rate is many times what I can get elsewhere, and it is only partially taxable. With a CGA to Wayne State, I can arrange for the money to be used to help needy students, support research endeavors, or help fill other needs.”
Donor Spotlight Austin & Daniel Kanter
“Wayne was there for me when I needed it. We wanted to give back. The marvelous letters from the scholarship recipients have brought great pleasure over the years. Harriet would have enjoyed them.”
