Marie A. Tront
Trust Beneficiary

“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.”

Mel Janowitz
Lifetime Income

“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.”
