Honoring Our Most Generous Donors

What does it mean to be a champion? It’s not just about winning. It’s about achieving. It’s about rising above all others to make the kind of difference that’s meaningful, important, lasting. It’s about the members of The Tyee Club Champions Circle.

This exclusive group of the Tyee Club’s most inspiring champions is made up of individuals and families whose dedication to supporting UW student athletes has topped $1 million over time. Together, members of The Champions Circle have donated more than $93 million to provide life-changing scholarships, to erect world-class facilities and to help build competitive Husky teams and well-educated student athletes.

On behalf of Husky teams past, present and future, thank you!
