About the Foundation

The University of Washington Foundation is a non-profit, public 501(c)(3) organization that advances the mission of the University of Washington by seeking and securing private support for its programs in service to students and society.

The Foundation is a conduit for giving to University of Washington students, faculty, programs and/or facilities; gifts are applied to the UW fund or allocated as designated by the donor.

Duties of elected UW Foundation Board members

University of Washington Foundation directors are committed to increasing the level of private giving to the UW in both number of dollars and number of donors, and to enhancing understanding among the UW’s alumni and other friends of the need for private giving to support excellence in programs throughout the University of Washington.
