Wayne Cares: Combined Charitable Contributions Campaign
Helping to build a successful community is part of Wayne State University's urban mission. Lending helpful hands to uplift those in need is a critical building block. Wayne Cares is a university outreach initiative that brings together the university community for the purpose of charitable giving. Its primary goal is to help university units work together and collaborate with each other for the good of the community.
The charitable organizations participating in the combined campaign are the Black United Fund and United Way for Southeastern Michigan. The Black United Fund is a community-based resource center that assists community efforts through referrals, funding, consultation and/or technical assistance. United Way provides our community with an independent safety net of health and human services by supporting a number of community service agencies.
