Giving Day contributions of every size make a major difference! Support the Helping Individuals Go Higher Program, which helps financially stressed students reach their graduation goals by providing housing support, textbooks, clothing, transportation and child-care assistance.
This project aims to raise $25,000 on behalf of the Sarnaik Challenge for the Wayne State HIGH Program. The Sarnaik Challenge was started by Dr. Sharada Sarnaik and Dr. Ashok P. Sarnaik after they set up the Sarnaik Endowment Fund in 2018. The endowment fund's donations are met dollar for dollar by the Sarnaiks, and all donations directly benefit the HIGH Program. The HIGH Program seeks to assist students who are homeless or precariously housed so that they don't have to abandon their degree. From 2013 to 2018, the HIGH Program has helped 148 Wayne State students with various forms of assistance, and seeks to help many more in the future through the generous donations of the Sarnaiks and many other compassionate individuals.
