Husky Giving Day 2021

On Husky Giving Day, our University of Washington community 

put on an incredible display of support. 

These contributions will have an immediate impact on the well-being of students, 

programs and initiatives across the UW. We are immensely grateful for every Husky around the 

world who is dedicated to making a difference at the University of Washington. 

Our greatest strength truly is our community.
