Parents & Families


Supporting student success

One of the most meaningful ways to support your UW student is by contributing to the UW Parent & Family Fund for Student Success.

Gifts to this fund support critical programs and resources for our students, like 24/7 access to mental health counselors and emergency aid. Your support enriches the undergraduate experience from move-in through graduation, including leadership opportunities, undergraduate research and career development.

Thank you for your support of our Huskies! We are so grateful to UW Families!

Making an Impact

24/7 access to mental health services for all Huskies

night safety services

A student’s mental well-being can greatly impact their academic performance, their ability to persist in their education, and the quality of their Husky Experience. Your gift to the UW Parent & Family Fund helps us provide students access to immediate, confidential mental wellness conversations and crisis intervention support, 24 hours a day/7 days a week by phone and online chat.

Student safety – Husky Nightwalk

The Husky NightWalk Program was created with a generous gift by a Husky parent in 2017. Your gift to the UW Parent & Family Fund helps us continue to provide walking escorts to our students within the campus locations and the residential area north of 45th St., and to the UW Tower, and meet our growing safety needs.

Student Emergency Fund

Unexpected events and expenses are stressful and impact a student’s academic success, personal well-being and sometimes their ability to remain at the UW. Your gift to the UW Parent & Family Fund helps fund modest grants of emergency aid to students with significant financial need who are experiencing unexpected hardships that disrupt their education or prevent them from earning their degree.

This is another one of the great tools that your students have access to. Students can discover their purpose and connect it to college and careers. Students can take assessments to gain insights into their interests, values, personality, and workplace preferences. Explore UW majors, career paths, and internships that align with their unique gifts and purpose. View PathwayU resources on our website.
