Wayne and Janet Wisbaum

for your unwavering commitment to private higher education in Western New York.

Support comes in many ways and often from unsung heroes like Janet and Wayne Wisbaum. Janet and Wayne have quietly supported Daemen College for more than two decades, which has directly contributed to several successes at the college.

As a Daemen trustee, Wayne continually challenged the college to be better and to do more. He was known to be an incredible cheerleader for the college in the Western New York community. Most recently, Janet and Wayne invested in Daemen’s scholarship program, as well as the Center for Polish Studies, which has provided funding to bring key speakers to campus and enabled many students and faculty to travel to Poland to work on academic and service learning projects.

Sadly, Wayne passed away last December but his passion and drive still lives on through Janet, his family, and the Daemen programs he supported. Daemen is indebted for the generosity, leadership, and commitment the Wisbaums have given to the college community.
