Give to the UW

Planned giving overview

Fostering the greater common good — together.

When you make a gift to the University of Washington through your will, trust or retirement plan, you’re seeding an orchard that will nourish generations of students to come.

Planned gifts offer creative, flexible strategies for your estate and charitable planning. Some even provide you with income. Many can reduce your taxes.

The greatest benefit? Knowing you’re supporting the world-changing work of the UW.

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.
