It’s hard to overstate the impact your giving has on the University of Washington’s students, faculty and, in turn, the greater community. Because you care so much, the UW is on a course of excellence. It is also hard to overstate how thankful we are to have your support. We know you have many options about where to invest your time and money, and we are grateful you choose to make the University of Washington one of your priorities.
Within this site, you will read some examples of how private support changes lives, from helping a student become the first in her family to attend college, to helping a researcher with a very personal connection to a disease make strides against it. And you’ll hear from supporters about what compels them to give.
This past fiscal year, 111,145 donors gave more than $313 million to the University, showing tremendous belief in the value of the UW and its people. Whatever motivates you, we are incredibly thankful that you give the gift of opportunity, and we are humbled by your dedication and commitment. This year, we are looking ahead at ways to create an even stronger, more accessible and more entrepreneurial University. We continue our proud tradition of setting big goals, and with your continued help, we’ll reach them together.
Thank you for all you do for the University of Washington!
