A legacy of support

The Henry K. Benson Endowed Scholarship in Chemical Engineering has provided support for over 175 undergraduate students.

Since 1972, the UW has recognized its most generous annual donors by welcoming them into the President’s Club. What began as a small group of 46 supporters and volunteers today includes more than 9,000 friends of the UW. Donors who contribute $2,000 or more annually to any UW school, college, program, department or campus become members of the President’s Club.

These loyal supporters want to make a difference at the UW — and they do, year after year. President’s Club members provide the backbone of critical private support that makes the UW a leader for positive developments in our community, our region and beyond. Their gifts make a profound difference in the lives of countless people locally and around the world who benefit from the UW’s teaching, research and public service programs.

  • Invitations to academic programs, lectures and special events, including the annual Recognition Gala.
