The UW Alumni Association's mission is to support the UW and higher education in the state of Washington. Founded in 1889, the UW Alumni Association has been the foundation of the UW alumni community for more than 125 years. With more than 60,000 members, UWAA is one of the largest alumni organizations in the United States. Everyone who supports the UW is invited to become a member.
The past year has been a challenging one for all, particularly our students. Events continue to bring a sense of urgency to the fact that we all must join together to create a more equitable and inclusive society. As part of our efforts, we have chosen to highlight three funds that provide incredible support to our Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) student communities.
The Brotherhood Initiative aims to close the education gap and address other educational inequities for underrepresented men of color at the UW, focusing on identity, academic skills and leadership.
The Multicultural Alumni Partnership (MAP) has been promoting diversity at UW and in the UW alumni community for over 25 years.
Julian O. Argel Endowment for the UW Intellectual House supports American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) students with emergency support, including food assistance and mental health support, which have been crucial during the COVID-19 pandemic.
UWAA's Husky Giving Day Challenge: Unlock additional dollars with your donation!
On April 8, Your donation to any of these funds will be counted to unlock additional dollars (donated by UWAA's Board of Trustees) which will be allocated to each fund. Every 5th participating donor will unlock $150 ($50 for each fund!).
In honor of UWAA's 132nd year of bringing community together in support of the UW, our 132nd donor will unlock $1,320 ($440 per fund!).
