2014 Combined Fund Drive


Join the Earth Day Challenge

In honor of Earth Day, you can support environmental organizations working to preserve our planet through our first ever Earth Day Challenge. From April 14-30, the UW Combined Fund Drive is partnering with EarthShare Washington to celebrate Earth Day, a day set aside annually for us to think about how we can take action to protect the environment.

Two ways to participate!

  • You can join the movement by selecting from 36 local and national environmental organizations and pledge a one-time gift or choose to support EarthShare Washington, a federation comprised of environmental organizations, all working toward saving our planet, and your donation will be divided amongst the participating organizations.
  • Volunteer for your favorite environmental cause and track your hours. Each volunteer hour will be counted as a $10 donation toward our goal.

Prizes will be given away throughout the challenge!  Congratulations to:

  • Kari Anderson, Suzzalo Library, who won the daily prize on Monday, April 14. Kari won a KAVU prize pack including a men’s hat and T-shirt, and a women’s T-shirt and shoulder bag!
  • Jonathan Pober, Physics, who won the daily prize on Wednesday, April 23. His prize pack included a Banya 5 spa pass and REI Flash 18 backpack!
