Employee Giving at UW Medicine
Your gift is important: any amount, anytime.
You, our colleagues, make UW Medicine a better place simply by working here. Together, we save lives, advance vital research efforts and train the next generation of healthcare professionals.
At this website, you can make another kind of commitment to UW Medicine: a gift. You can divide your contribution among several payments through payroll deduction (see below), or you can make a one-time gift.
Select a method that works for you. Choose a program — for patients in our hospitals and clinics, for our research programs, for our students and trainees — that makes a difference in peoples’ lives. And know that your gift will be very much appreciated.

Payroll Deduction: An Easy Way to Give
Payroll deduction splits your gift into small, convenient payments. And it’s a great way to make a gift to research, patient care or education. Four or five or 10 dollars a paycheck adds up to a significant contribution to the program of your choice over the course of a year — and it won’t strain your wallet.
When you make a payroll deduction, your pledge is split among a number of pay periods that you designate. Most employees choose the standard, 24 pay periods (one year). The minimum is 6 pay periods (three months).
Note: Payroll deductions are gratefully accepted year-round. New deductions made by June 18 will take effect July 2014. We renew these pledges every year unless you instruct otherwise.
