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. #RealDawgsGiveBack 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.

Class of 2017 Sustainable Legacy Fund

Provides funding for UW students to pursue renewable energy technology with the support of the Sustainability Office.


Graduate Student Inclusion Fund

To support graduate students through fellowships with the Graduate Opportunities and Minority Achievement Program (GO-MAP).


UW Bothell Student Emergency Fund

Created by the Class of 2016, this fund provides emergency support for UW Bothell students who are experiencing unexpected financial crises and otherwise could not continue school.


UW Tacoma Pantry Fund

Financial support for UW Tacoma's "The Pantry", which provides food, hygiene items, and supplies for students.
