Ever since JYM awarded its first scholarship in 1954, many students have depended on JYM for scholarship assistance to help finance their participation in the program. Thank you for supporting JYM and its students!
You can make a donation in support of scholarships, in support of JYM's endowment, or both.
1. Scholarships: Donate Online
When you donate online, you will need to select JYM and type in the name of the fund you wish to support. Here is a picture of how to complete the online form to support scholarships
2. Scholarships: Donate by mailing the JYM Donation Form (PDF)
If you prefer, print the PDF form and mail it to the address indicated on the donation form.
Gifts to JYM are Tax-Deductible
As of 2018 JYM has its very first endowed fund to help pay program operational expenses, e.g. instruction, excursions, full-time and part-time faculty & staff. Read all about it in the 2018 JYM Newsletter!
1) Endowed Scholarship Funds
Gifts to these funds are added to their principle so that the endowments grow. As the endowments increase over time, so too does the amount of scholarship assistance available.
• Dr. Marianne Riegler Endowed Scholarship Fund
• Prof. Marvin S. Schindler Endowed Junior Year in Munich Scholarship Fund
• The Howard Adler Endowed Scholarship Fund
• The Susan Henricksen Thompson and Robert Ward Thompson Endowed Scholarship Fund
2) Annual Scholarships
JYM depends on annual gift-giving to provide these scholarships. The number and amount of the scholarship awards we can distribute depends entirely on the amount of donations received each year.
After you have made plans to care for your family and loved ones, please consider a legacy gift through your estate plans that will transform the lives of future JYM students for years to come. Wayne State University can assist you as you consider planned giving opportunities that will directly and exclusively benefit the JYM program and its students, including . . .
• A bequest in a will or trust
• Publicly traded stocks or bonds
• Life-income gifts
• Retirement fund assets
• Life insurance
• Charitable lead trusts
