Ways of Giving: Overview

The University of Washington is driven to provide an excellent education and world-class opportunities to its students, and to serve the citizens of our state by addressing society’s most vital issues. Private financial support affords all who benefit from UW services and programs even greater levels of access and opportunity through innovative new programs; funding for student scholarship awards; technology, equipment and improved facilities; and recruitment and retention of the faculty who continue to make this University one of the best in the world.

Private investment also represents an important vote of confidence in the work and the potential of the University of Washington from our alumni, friends, volunteers, parents, faculty, staff, retirees, and current students.
