University of Washington Advancement

Campus building overhead shot

Guided by our mission, vision and values, UW Advancement strives to make the University of Washington the world’s greatest public university, as measured by our impact.

This goal is made possible by our fully integrated advancement model, which brings together development, alumni and stakeholder engagement, and marketing and communications. In partnership with the UW Foundation and the UW Alumni Association, UW Advancement creates meaningful connections with our stakeholders that foster pride, advocacy and philanthropic support.

The current centerpiece of our effort is the Be Boundless campaign to raise $5 billion for Washington and the world. But being boundless means so much more than a number. Visit our campaign website to learn more about the most ambitious fundraising initiative in the University’s history.
