Blumenstein Foundation Donates to the HIGH Program

May 23, 2017

The HIGH Program was very grateful for the very generous donation from the Harold and Penny B. Blumenstein Foundation.  The Blumenstein Foundation, founded by Harold Blumenstein as well as his wife Penny, and has been operating out of Bingham Farms, Michigan, as a charitable organization since 1987.  A graduate of Wayne State University himself, Harold has shown his passion for the midtown Detroit area and Wayne State’s campus, and has given back to the community numerous times through his foundation.

The HIGH Program is incredibly honored to be a recent recipient of the Blumenstein foundation’s generosity.  The WSU HIGH (Helping Individuals Go Higher) Program is unique in that our mission directly caters to helping young people better their lives by obtaining a degree from the university. We collaborate with other student run organizations, local restaurants, and businesses to make this all possible. Since its inception in 2013, our program has assisted over 175 students reach their goal of graduation. It is the Helping Individuals Go Higher Program’s hope to empower students emerged in current financial conflicts by lending them a helping hand, directing them to their future.
