The Wayne University Foundation was formed in 1938 to receive and administer financial endowments donated to the university. It was the hope of the university that endowment funds would play a large role in providing the necessary financial stability for Wayne to establish itself as a notable academic institution. Although the foundation existed for more than twenty years, it generated no substantial private donations or legacies. It was finally closed out in April of 1961.

The Wayne University Foundation Records include the financial records, reports, ledgers, and meeting minutes of the Wayne University Foundation from 1939 to 1961.
