When it comes to student gifts, there’s strength in numbers. Your donation doesn’t need to be large, but when combined with the gifts from fellow students, it can have a huge impact.
Every gift from a student is a vote of confidence that inspires alumni and friends to give more — and unites us all in a collective effort to ensure that students and faculty at the UW continue to make a lasting difference today and for years to come.
Did you know you can directly support programs you feel passionate about? Why not take a few minutes to search for a fund that supports what you believe in?
Senior Class Gift Campaign
Each year at Commencement, the graduating class presents the Senior Class Gift to the university. The Senior Class Gift is a gesture of thanks to the students who came before them, and a commitment to ensure that future UW students are able to receive outstanding educational opportunities.
