Your impact on endowments

 

Rule changes approved this year by the NCAA now require us to cover the full cost of college attendance for our student-athletes. This rule change added $804,000 to our annual scholarship costs, making scholarship endowments more important than ever before.

Today, our scholarship endowments total $57.5 million and pay out $2.18 million a year to cover about 23 percent of our scholarship costs. To fully endow all our scholarships — providing a permanent source of worry-free funding to give all our student-athletes the chance to learn and compete — would cost $250 million.

Establishing a full or partial scholarship endowment shows your deep commitment to Husky Athletics. Contact us at 206-543-2234 to learn more.

 

A special thank-you

A 50 percent match in late 2015 from the University of Washington encouraged many of our generous donors to make an even bigger impact on the lives of student-athletes. We are deeply grateful to them for generously creating new scholarship endowments or adding to existing ones.
