UW Medicine gratefully welcomes gifts made in memory of or in honor of your family, friends or mentors.
How do I make my gift?
By calling us at 206.543.5686 or mailing a check to UW Medicine Advancement, Attn.: Gift Processing, Box 358045, Seattle, WA 98195‐8045.
What do we need to know?
The name of the person you’re paying tribute to — and, if you know it, the name of the fund being used to honor them. Please write that on your check, or mention it in your phone call.
Will we notify the family?
Yes. If you give us the name and address of the next-of-kin (or the person you’re honoring), we will be sure to let them know.
How do I mention UW Medicine in an obituary?
We suggest that you use text similar to this:
The family requests that memorial gifts be made in support of the [program/hospital/research area] at UW Medicine. Checks should be made payable to the “UW Foundation” and mailed to: UW Medicine Advancement, Attn.: Gift Processing, Box 358045, Seattle, WA 98195‐8045. Please indicate that the gift is in memory of [name]. Or you may make a gift online at www.supportuwmedicine.org.
Thank you for thinking of UW Medicine.
