Wayne Law Gives

Now in its fifth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back. Its purpose is to celebrate and encourage giving.

THIS YEAR, #GIVINGTUESDAY IS NOVEMBER 29.

Wayne Law #GivingTuesday logoIn recognition of #GivingTuesday, Wayne Law is launching its first crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for its new need-based scholarship, Wayne Law Gives. Recipients of the Wayne Law Gives scholarship will be able to use these funds to help make up a gap not covered by their other scholarships or financial aid. 

For the third year in a row, Wayne Law has been recognized as a "Best Value Law School" by The National Jurist and preLaw magazine. However, most of our students still rely on scholarships and student loans to cover the cost of their tuition and fees - about $30,000 annually. This amount doesn't include the cost of books or other expenses associated with attending Wayne Law.

In addition, we have four matching gift opportunities.

Interim Dean Lance Gable will personally match any gifts received from faculty and staff up to $5,000.

An alumna will give $100 for every student who gives a gift in the amount of their graduation year (i.e., $20.17 for class of 2017).

Sandy and Jay Colvin, both class of 1989, will match any gifts of $100 or more received from other alumni up to $5,000.

A second-year Wayne Law student will personally match every student gift in the amount of their graduation year (i.e., $20.18 for the class of 2018) up to $1,000.

Every donation will make a difference. Please spread the word about our #GivingTuesday campaign to your circle of family and friends. The more people who know about our #GivingTuesday campaign, the closer we'll get to reaching our goal of $15,000.

Prefer to make your gift over the phone with a REAL PERSON? Call 313-577-9763 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. on #GivingTuesday.
