Detroit’s educational and cultural institutions are essential resources that make our region a great place to live and work. The Wayne State University Press combines an educational mission with a commitment to publishing and promoting Michigan writers and works of local interest and national importance. Thank you for your interest in sustaining our region’s nonprofit publisher — a publisher that strives to present remarkable works that do not fit the traditional trade publishing mold.
Donations & Gifts
Like most nonprofit publishers, book sales only account for a small portion of the Press's total revenue. In order to continue to publish the highest quality work, WSU Press relies on the generosity of an ever-growing group of dedicated supporters.

Learn more about WSU Press's dedicated society of supporters. More than mere donors, Press Club members are ardent advocates for regional publishing. They’re insiders that will experience firsthand how their support brings essential new voices to print. Periodically throughout the year, members will be invited to exclusive events where they’ll rub elbows with Press authors and contributors and receive an insider’s glimpse into the creation of our most important upcoming books that they have helped support.
The Press is actively building series endowments in the areas of Jewish Studies, African American Life, Great Lakes Books, Film and Television Studies, and Made in Michigan Writers. If you are interested in supporting a specific series, please contact Gabe Gloden, Community Engagement Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 313-577-6130 for more information.
In addition to buying Press books and providing financial support, the best way to support the Press is to attend one of our many special events. It’s a great opportunity to interact with our authors, staff and community in a meaningful way that supports the Press’s unique and important mission.
