An Example of How It Works
“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.”
—Marie A. Tront
