On Husky Giving Day, our impact happens together

When our University community comes together to apply our passion, talent and vision, we create impact on an incredible scale. This is never more apparent than today, as we mark the annual tradition of Husky Giving Day, the embodiment of our philosophy that it takes all of us collaborating to advance discovery that improves lives, create transformational opportunity, and builds healthy, enduring communities.

Husky Giving Day is a chance for Huskies everywhere – faculty, staff, alumni, students, friends and supporters – to experience the joyful feeling of giving to causes that truly change the world for the better. By giving through the UW, our community supports everything from student scholarships to cancer research to environmental conservation. And those examples only scratch the surface of the UW’s broad and deep work to improve lives now and in the future.

If you are already among the Husky Giving Day supporters, thank you for the investment you’ve made in the causes that are closest to your heart. You are fueling the extraordinary learning, innovation, discovery and healthcare that the UW provides to our region and the world, and our University is honored to be entrusted with turning your financial support into real-world impact.

If you’re thinking of joining in this Husky Giving Day, I hope you will consider the impact of giving to the UW Fund. This fund enables the UW to meet our students’ most time-sensitive needs and to be nimble in our approach to the pressing and urgent challenges the world faces. It provides funding for some of the most high-impact projects across the University, ranging from student mental health to climate solutions research to scholarships and support programs that encourage student success, particularly for first-generation and underrepresented students.

Thank you for the many ways that you contribute to the mission and success of the University of Washington, including all the ways that you make our world more equitable, sustainable, healthy and innovative. I wish you a happy Husky Giving Day and look forward to celebrating all the milestones that lie ahead thanks to the generosity of our Husky family.
