Partnerships

UWAA and BECU partner for students

Since 2008, BECU and the UW Alumni Association have joined together to support our members, UW students and the alumni community.

The UWAA and BECU both value strong ties to the community and focus on member satisfaction. That’s why, for more than a decade, the two nonprofits have been teaming up to offer affinity card programs, financial literacy seminars, student scholarships and more.

Since 2015, BECU has helped the UWAA make the annual fall membership drive more meaningful by matching UWAA member dues with a gift to UW student programs. That’s $50 per regular annual membership, up to $50,000. This fall, thanks to the strong response by new and renewing members, BECU once again donated the full match fund amount. That brings the total to $300,000 over six years to support UW students and UWAA programming.

Leading through financial education

BECU is also working with the UWAA and the UW Career and Internship Program to present Money Matters with BECU, a two-event series of seminars to help Huskies manage their finances reduce their debts, and take control of their futures. The seminars are free, and will take place in early December, 2020.

None of this could have been possible without the support of UWAA members and our BECU partners. Thank you!
