Sean Anderson Foundation, founded by recording artist Big Sean, donates $10,000 for Wayne State’s HIGH Program SHARE

By Jack Barnes

The Sean Anderson Foundation has donated $10,000 to benefit Wayne State University’s HIGH (Helping Individuals Go Higher) Program.

This is the third gift from the Sean Anderson Foundation in support of the HIGH Program. In 2016, the foundation created a $25,000 endowment for the program, exemplifying recording artist Big Sean’s commitment to improving the quality of life of young people. The foundation also donated $15,000 to the HIGH Program in 2017.

A native Detroiter, Big Sean established the Sean Anderson Foundation to provide better opportunities for those in need.

“Supporting the HIGH Program has been one of the important goals of the foundation, and we are pleased to continue our commitment to the program,” said Myra Anderson, executive director/president of the foundation and Sean’s mother. “The HIGH Program offers critical support to students facing hardships, and is making a positive difference in their lives.”

Wayne State University first lady Jacqueline Wilson founded the HIGH Program in 2013 when she was made aware of a medical student who was living in their car. Reports indicate student homelessness is a nationwide issue, and the HIGH Program offers a strategic response to this issue at Wayne State. Students in the HIGH Program receive short-term assistance with the goal of returning students to long-term stability and helping them complete their degree.

“We are very appreciative of the Sean Anderson Foundation and its continuing support of our program through their generous gifts,” said Wilson. “The foundation’s commitment to the HIGH Program has provided assistance to students in need, and we are gratified that the foundation’s generosity will continue to offer hope and support for our program.”
