Your Support. Their Future. Our Huskies.


By endowing a scholarship, a coaching position or a program, your generosity to UW Athletics will live on forever. By establishing an endowment, the principle of your gift remains intact and the proceeds provide an ongoing source of support. The Game Changer Campaign for Husky Athletics offers you three ways to make this enduring commitment.

Endow a Scholarship

By endowing a scholarship, you give a student-athlete the opportunity of a lifetime for a world-class UW education. Scholarships are one of Husky Athletics’ largest annual expenses and currently, only about one-quarter of our scholarships are endowed.

Minimum Commitment Levels:

  • Full In-State Scholarship Endowment: $650,000
  • Partial Scholarship Endowment: $250,000
  • Program Endowment: $100,000

*Cost to fund full out of state scholarship = $1,000,000

Create a Program Endowment

Boost the sport you’re most passionate about with a program endowment. Your gift will provide the head coach with discretionary funds to count on each year to pay for team needs not covered in the program’s annual budget. Establish your program endowment with an initial investment of $100,000 (fully endowed programs vary by sport). You may add to it over time or eventually convert it to a scholarship or coaching endowment.

Endow a Coaching Position

For the first time ever, we are pleased to offer donors the opportunity to establish named coaching endowments. Just as endowing a professorship, faculty chair or deanship in an academic department can help attract world-class scholars to the UW, an endowed coaching or staff position will enhance our success in bringing exciting new talent to Husky Athletics and keeping the great staff we already have. Coaching endowments range from $1 to 15 million.
