Give to the UW

Senior Class Gift

Senior Class Gift

The University was founded with a gift of land from four Seattle families. Since then, giving back has been in our DNA. Real Dawgs Give Back in a variety of ways — and supporting future Huskies is one way to truly make an impact.

Our History

Over the past century, UW students have united to show the power of participation. From the Yoshino cherry trees in the Quad to the supporting access to mental health resources, the mark of graduating Huskies is evident and everlasting.

UW Seattle Senior Class Gift

This year the graduating Class of 2021 at UW Seattle is supporting the UW Seattle COVID-19 Emergency Student Fund. The UW Seattle COVID-19 Emergency Student Fund provides unrestricted resources to undergraduate and graduate students who are experiencing financial hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Your gift today can help provide support for tuition, books and supplies, housing and living expenses, technology for virtual learning, child care, or unanticipated medical cost. Your support will make all the difference.


UW Tacoma Senior Class Gift

The graduating Class of 2021 at UW Tacoma is supporting the Rosa Franklin Endowed Fund to support UW Tacoma nursing students for generations to come. Your gift will make a significant impact. For those that are able to make a gift of $20.21 or more, you will receive a commemorative class pin (please note, there are a limited quantity of pins available).


UW Bothell Senior Class Gift

The Class of 2021 at UW Bothell is supporting the UW Bothell Student Emergency Fund. In light of developments surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic in the Seattle region and around the world, the University of Washington Bothell community is relying on each other now more than ever. Students' lives have been significantly disrupted, and many have lost jobs, housing, and family support that enables their education. Make a positive impact on the future of your fellow Huskies by supporting the UW Bothell Student Emergency Fund!
