Wayne State Foundation

Since its founding in 1961, the Wayne State Foundation has focused on providing students with scholarships. With the initial scholarship support of $1,300 in 1962 to more than $2.4 million awarded in 2015, the Foundation continues its commitment to increase scholarships for Wayne State College students.


The foundation’s support of Wayne State doesn’t stop with scholarships. Through contributions of alumni, employees, trustees, foundations, and corporations, the foundation provided funding for the Carhart Science Building Renovation, Campus Commons Outdoor Pedestrian Walkway, Memorial Stadium Renovation, U.S. Conn Library, and the Willow Bowl, among other significant projects.


The Wayne State Foundation annually honors alumni and friends who have made a significant difference for Wayne State students, faculty and staff.


The Wayne State Foundation regularly funds or assists in funding campus improvement projects that ensure Wayne State’s facilities and programs are among the best in the state.
