Your Contributions to Our Mission

Asking good questions is a crucial part of making good decisions. Take this question: why not?

“Why not?” can be a challenge, but I also hear it as a call to action: an invitation to approach the future with an open mind and a willingness to explore. And isn’t that what medical science is all about? UW Medicine’s faculty, staff and students answer this question every day, and the result is scientific discoveries, enhanced patient care and improved educational programs.

Many of these achievements are made possible by you, our donors — more than 1,000 organizations and nearly 15,000 individuals (including more than 2,400 alumni from the University of Washington School of Medicine). In the past fiscal year, you contributed more than $137 million in gifts and grants to UW Medicine. In the pages that follow, you’ll read about a few of our contributors, people who challenge the status quo and push the art and science of medicine forward. My thanks to you all for making a good and generous decision: supporting UW Medicine’s work.
