Giving Day contributions of every size make a major difference! Support one of these projects today or give to another area that helps the School of Social Work. The Board of Visitors is matching every dollar given in support of the two highlighted projects- the Finish Line Fund and the Student Emergency Fund- up to $4,000, and a group of Cass Tech Alumni have made a gift of $43,575 to inspire giving to the School of Social work today.
Also, Wayne State University Police Chief Tony Holt is challenging donors to support their favorite scholarship fund on Giving Day. 50 gifts to any campus scholarship fund today unlocks a $7,500 gift from Chief Holt to his School of Social Work scholarship.
School of Social Work Finish Line Fund
At the Wayne State University School of Social Work, bachelor’s students are graduating with an average of $60,000 in student debt, while master’s students leave with nearly $65,000 in debt and the cost of higher education continues to rise. The Finish Line Fund will enable seniors to focus on preparing for graduation or professional school, or launching their careers, instead of taking on extra jobs to cover debt.
School of Social Work Emergency Fund
This fund is used to support students who encounter unexpected financial challenges, ranging from needing assistance with a utility bill after unexpected job loss to seeking housing after being temporarily displaced. Our priority is ensuring that our students are able to stay enrolled and successfully graduate by overcoming these financial challenges.
Wayne State faculty and staff can give via payroll deduction here. Consider a WSU legacy gift in your estate plan.
