You are extraordinary. As a donor who champions Husky student-athletes — in good times and hard times, in the ever-evolving world of intercollegiate athletics — you understand the crucial role you play in the lifelong development of these extraordinary young men and women. You are Uniquely Washington.
Of course, other university athletic programs enjoy donor support. But I’d challenge any of them to match your steadfast and monumental impact. In this publication, you’ll see firsthand how you change the lives of our student-athletes. From Lucas Meek, the Men’s Soccer player compelled to make a difference in honor of his grandfather, to the student-athletes who expanded their horizons in a study-abroad trip to Italy, to the other donors encouraged by your example — you make a powerful difference.
Whether you contribute $100 a year to your favorite team or devote $1 million to establish an endowed scholarship, each one of you makes an important contribution to creating well-rounded leaders, community-driven citizens and confident dream chasers. This report is our tribute to you and your generosity.
As we continue our year-long celebration of the 50th anniversary of Title IX, we recognize the advances that you’ve helped young women realize in competition and in the classroom. It’s an exciting time to be a female student-athlete today — as we like to say, Mighty Are the Women!
You care about your Huskies, not just when they win or when it’s easy. You care because you know you’re building champions in competition and in life. And that’s what makes you Uniquely Washington.
