Bequests and other creative ways to invest in the UW

The University of Washington was founded on an act of generosity. In 1861, three Seattle families donated 10 acres for the UW’s first campus — fertile ground that has grown to support today’s globally ranked research university.

Use the gift calculator to calculate benefits from gift annuities, charitable trusts and retained life estates. With planning, you can receive an immediate income-tax deduction, provide yourself or someone else with an annual income and support the University of Washington in a meaningful way.

Estate gifts of all sizes remain integral to the globe-spanning work of the UW. From creating student scholarships to endowing research activities, donors’ enduring legacies animate every corner of our University.

Whatever your passion, you can inspire future generations of leaders, thinkers and doers with a bequest to any program or college at the UW.
