Fund Development

Support from dynamic funders each year sustains Wayne Metro’s impactful anti-poverty services. Wayne Metro develops federal, state, and local partnerships as well as donations and in kind supports from community members. Our mission to empower people and communities succeeds through our collective efforts.
In concert with the goals of Community Action programming at the state and national levels, Wayne Metro has identified four funding development priorities.

Save the Day Fund

Save the Day Fund, our unrestricted fund, allows Wayne Metro to direct resources toward unmet needs and fill service gaps. Save the Day Fund provides emergency assistance to individuals and families throughout Wayne County who are experiencing financial crisis, facing homelessness, or struggling to provide the basic needs of daily living for their family.

Thank you to our Superheroes with an annual contribution by an organization of $10,000 or greater to the Save the Day Fund!


Family Stability

Family Stability includes early education services, literacy initiatives, afterschool/summer programs, and services for infants and pregnant mothers, healthcare access and workforce training.
