Air Van Moving Company
For over a decade, Air Van and its owners, the Galvagno family, have shown their dedication to the UW community. Air Van has been a major sponsor of UWAA events—including Coaches Tour, Dawg Dash and Washington Warm Ups—that raise money for student scholarships. This year, an additional scholarship opportunity was created through the Remo S. and Sheila A. Galvagno Scholarship, which offers full-year tuition to one deserving UW student. With Air Van's support, we have been able to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for the UWAA scholarship fund.
Air Van's dedication to its customers is as strong as its commitment to student scholarships. Since its inception more than 50 years ago, Air Van has proven itself a leader in the moving and storage industry. As the official moving company of UW alumni and University of Washington Athletics, this Husky owned and operated business continues to build its history of excellence.

The UWAA is proud to work with Liberty Mutual to offer meaningful discounts to all UW alumni. Thousands of alumni currently use our group discounts to save on quality insurance. In addition to providing a fantastic value to alumni, Liberty Mutual sponsors UWAA events such as Dawg Dash, Coaches Tour, and Washington Warm Ups—helping to raise money for student scholarships. They also run the college football Coach of the Year contest, which awards $20,000 to the alumni association of the winning coach's school. Liberty Mutual protects and supports the UW and its students.
The UWAA needs a lot of signage to support its numerous events. To produce these signs, we turn to a company we trust. That company is McNamara Signs of Seattle. Since it was founded in 1995, this locally-owned family business has been designing and crafting custom signs, banners and decals—and providing great value for the investment.
We also love that the company has strong ties to the UW and the alumni association. Its founders and owners, Mike and Heather McNamara, are both UW alums and UWAA lifetime members. In addition to its longstanding partnership with the UWAA, the company has completed projects for a variety of other UW units including Athletics and Housing & Food Services.
With more than 17 years of experience helping business owners to stand out and make an impact, McNamara Signs stands ready to assist other organizations in the Pacific Northwest with their signage needs—from custom signs, vinyl or digitally printed banners, vinyl graphics, printed decals, engraved signs and nameplates, large format inkjet prints, and dimensional logos and other more.
