Give to the UW

What happens when like-minded people unite to make dreams come true for others?

Students walk across the Quad

Inspiration blooms. Talents develop. Lives change.

Nearly five decades ago, a small group of people with a common goal joined together in a commitment to support the University of Washington.

Today, our circle has expanded to more than 13,000 strong and is known as The President’s Circle. This impactful community is made up of a diverse mix of faculty, alumni, retirees, friends and fans.

No matter how you personally support the UW, we welcome you to The President’s Circle as an expression of our gratitude for giving a total of $2,000 or more annually.
