Support Faculty, Students and Facilities

A gift to UW Engineering is an investment in the future. Private support is critical to turning out top flight engineers and pursuing transformative research as we compete against other top universities for the best and the brightest.


Sponsorships are a great way to gain visibility on campus, and face time with possible future employees. Many college-wide events that seek sponsorship draw thousands of participants.

An endowment is a permanent fund established for a specific purpose:

  • Attract and retain outstanding faculty and maintain excellence in teaching and research
  • Support for promising students to develop their talents
  • Provide discretionary funds, to be applied by the dean of Engineering or department chair, wherever needs are greatest.

You can establish an endowment with cash, securities, real estate, or through a bequest.
