The UW Parent & Family Fund for Student Success

This year, gifts to the UW Parent & Family Fund are focused on providing support for critical programs and resources focused on academic, mental health and safety of all our Huskies — whether they are on campus or at home.

UW Parent & Family Participation Challenge

Two of our Husky Families would like to encourage 300 or more families to give any amount to the UW Parent & Family Fund during Husky Giving Day – and they will give $30,000 to the UW Parent & Family Fund!

  • Gifts of $5 or more will receive UWFamily Stickers and Pins
  • Gifts of $250 or more will receive UWFamily Swag Bag with UW Parent & Family Fans
  • Gifts of $2000 will receive UWFamily Swag Bag & recognition at the President’s Circle

Student Emergency Fund

The grants made from the Student Emergency Fund do not require repayment to the University, and 4 out of 5 recipients shared that the emergency aid grant they received help them stay enrolled in school. The average emergency aid grant distributed during the academic year 2019-2020 was $800.  The top reasons cited for requesting aid were loss of income and food and housing insecurity, due to COVID-19. Huskies have also sought out emergency aid for Internet and Technology access, emergency medical and dental costs.

24/7 access to Mental Health for all Huskies

UW has partnered with MySSP to give Huskies access to immediate, confidential mental health and crisis intervention support, 24 hours a day/7 days a week and in multiple languages through phone and online chat. Help our students build a strong foundation as they face the uncontrollable crisis through strong emotional preparedness and a haven that they can trust and count on for mental, emotional, and social recovery as needed.

Student Safety – Husky Nightwalk

Husky NightWalk Program began through a generous gift by Husky Families in 2017. Your gifts to the UW Parent & Family Fund will help provide walking escorts to our students within the campus locations and the residential area north of 45th St., and to the UW Tower location.

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