Giving Day contributions of every size make a major difference! Generate prosperity and opportunity for all with your Giving Day donations! A gift of any size will support Office of Economic Development (OED) programs that invest in our community and its talented people.
Wayne State generates more than $2.4 billion in annual economic impact. In addition to preparing a significant percentage of our state’s workforce, the university is the 10th largest employer in the city of Detroit. We spend millions of dollars on research — for developing new technologies, private-sector spinoffs and jobs — and we make big investments in our neighborhood.
In 2011, Wayne State created the OED to elevate the university’s economic impact and stimulate growth in the wake of the great recession. Now, as we celebrate our 10th anniversary, the work of the OED is more important than ever. Your generosity will help our community emerge from the economic challenges of today, ready to embrace the economic opportunities of tomorrow.
Wayne State faculty and staff can give via payroll deduction here. Consider a WSU legacy gift in your estate plan.
