Giving Opportunities

A university is a great place to get involved. Everywhere you look something new is taking shape—that’s certainly the case at UW College of Engineering. A dynamic education doesn’t just happen with tuition dollars. It requires the involvement and investment of many. Our continued success depends on your partnership. Here are some unique ways your investment can make a difference to students and faculty:

Dean’s Fund for Excellence

Unrestricted gifts to the Dean’s Fund for Excellence have no strings attached and go directly toward addressing the College’s most pressing needs or are used to strengthen ongoing student or faculty programs.

Capstone Fund

A capstone, or senior design project, is the centerpiece of an undergraduate engineering education at the UW. Gifts to Capstone Fund will allow students to pursue their professional interests, work in a team and tackle complex, full-cycle design—taking their project beyond the classroom or the lab and into the real world.

Engineering Academic Center Fund

The Engineering Academic Center (EAC) provides an essential resource and supportive learning community for UW engineering students, offering tutoring, mentoring and workshops. Gifts to the EAC Campaign fund will be used to establish an endowment that will provide scholarships, hire instructors and improve facilities. Your gift will have double the impact thanks to a generous 1:1 matching opportunity.
