Your Contributions to Our Mission

I’ll bet you have a mission. Perhaps yours is to raise great kids, or to write your memoirs, or simply to find fulfilling work.

UW Medicine has a mission, one that’s big and ambitious: to improve the health of the public. In the last fiscal year, nearly 1,200 organizations and more than 15,600 people — including 2,342 University of Washington School of Medicine alumni — made gifts or grants to support that mission.

While economic forecasts remain uncertain, the fact that you provided more than $156 million to support our work in medical research, patient care and education — what one of my colleagues calls “heroic medicine” — is a testament to your faith in our mission.

On this site, you’ll read about contributors who are helping us improve patient safety, explore the complex world of proteins, educate compassionate doctors and more. My thanks to them and to all of UW Medicine’s donors for improving the health of the public in the Northwest and around the globe.
