Real Dawgs Give Back (SPEP)

Student Philanthropy Education Program (SPEP)

SPEP is the student arm of the UW Foundation. We provide leadership and volunteer opportunities for students. Our mission is to educate students about the impact and importance of philanthropy at UW.

“SPEP gives me enough support to grow as an individual and also lots of opportunities to care about people around me through educating them the importance of giving back to this diverse campus.”

Eugenia Yang, SPEP Chair 2017-2018

Real Dawgs Day

May 16, 2018 11:30am-2pm, Red Square

To celebrate the impact that private support makes on our campus, SPEP (Student Philanthropy Education Program) is hosting their 8th annual Real Dawgs Day event on May 16th in Red Square. Our goal is to educate UW students about the impact donors make on each students unique #HuskyExperience.

Students also have the ability to learn more about how they can get involved with SPEP and its mission of service and leadership. Staff have students sign thank you cards to other special markets audiences (i.e. recent graduates or faculty and staff donors) in exchange for a Krispy Kreme donut.
