HOME YOUR IMPACT Why Are You Important?

You’re the most valuable member of our team

Your gifts account for 25 percent of the funding we need each year to recruit outstanding student-athletes, develop them to reach their fullest potential at the UW and after they graduate, hire and retain excellent coaches, and build the facilities that make the fan experience second to none.

Through donor-funded scholarships and support, student-athletes compete in sports they love while earning something they will value for a lifetime: a University of Washington education. Thanks to the academic support funded by Husky donors, seven out of every 10 UW student-athletes earn a GPA of 3.0 or better. More than 8 out of 10 Husky athletes graduate, second only to Stanford in the Pac 12 and better than Washington’s overall student graduation rate.

In addition, thanks to you, our student-athletes have access to leading-edge technology to support their conditioning, training, nutrition, overall wellness, mental and emotional health, and all-around optimal performance. Your support helps keep our teams competitive in a tough Pac-12 and NCAA environment. We win because of you.

By investing in Husky Athletics, you build champions – in competition and in the classroom.
