Parents & Families

The UW Parent & Family Fund for Student Success

Hope – what students and families feel when they receive their UW acceptance letter – hope for a meaningful career, a great life and a wonderful Husky Experience. The UW Parent & Family Fund for Student Success helps make that hope a reality by investing in out-of-the-classroom experiences that help students make the most of their time on campus and become amazing UW graduates.

Besides what students learn in the classroom, two areas that have the most impact on the Husky Experience and students’ success after graduation are the development of career strategy and leadership skill building. Our fund also supports Emergency Resources for students who find themselves in unexpected situations needing food, shelter or medical/health services.

  • Leadership development
    The UW is committed to creating a legacy of leadership that will impact
    your student, our communities, our nation, and the world. We support programs and services outside the classroom that help your student develop leadership skills through coursework, leadership programs, service learning and community engagement, and research. It’s about integrity, respect for others and teamwork.
  • Career strategy
    The economic marketplace and our communities are looking for graduates who have experiences inside and outside the classroom. Through our advisors, mentors and the Career & Internship Center, UW faculty and staff are deeply committed to helping your student map a path from the first year to graduation and preparing your student for the rapidly changing landscape of the world of work.
  • Emergency resources
    The UW is big and public, just like life. We support programs and services that help students stay afloat during difficult times and connect with student wellness and mental health.

Extraordinary generosity results in extraordinary impact on the lives of UW students, on the future of our community and on the world.

Parents and families who make a gift to the UW Parent & Family Fund for Student Success will support the services and programs on campus that help our current students explore, engage and pursue out-of-the- classroom learning opportunities. Every gift makes a difference to the student experience and deepens the impact of the #UWFamily’s support.
