Dream Big. Act Bold. Be Boundless.

What does it mean to be a Game Changer?

It’s that awesome, breath-catching moment when a player does something so spectacular that it changes everything. It’s when the team, the fans, everyone, can feel the momentum shift. From here on out, nothing will be the same. Because it mattered. Because it made a difference. Because one person stepped up to give it all for love of the game and for pride in the team. One person became a game changer.

The Game Changer Campaign for Husky Athletics is creating a new opportunity for you to be spectacular, to be part of something big and important and even transformational — to make a game-changing difference for student-athletes, to build winning teams for years to come, and to unite our community around Husky pride.

$306 million of $320 million

By donating to The Competitive Edge Fund, you bolster scholarships and invest in the future of student-athletes who will leave the UW as principled citizens ready to make an impact on the world. Gifts to the Fund also support leading-edge academic assistance, enriched learning opportunities, innovative training technology and coaching recruitment.

It has become increasingly expensive to provide the scholarships and coaching positions that are essential to our student-athletes and to team competitiveness. Establishing a full or partial endowment — a perpetually ongoing source of financial support — is one of the most significant ways individuals or families can show their loyalty and love for the Huskies.

A bequest to Husky Athletics is a remarkable way to be a Game Changer. Legacy donors join Forever Washington, a giving program for those who remember UW Athletics in their wills or other estate plans. You may decide to bequeath a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate. Or, you can choose to support Husky Athletics through a variety of estate plans the University can assist you in evaluating.

We welcome gifts of all sizes to the campaign and offer many different ways to be engaged. Tyee Club members who donate at the Game Changer level of $50,000 or more earn special recognition and benefits. To learn more about the impact you can make as a Game Changer, call 206.543.2234 or email us today.
