Interested in supporting UW CSE through an endowment rather than an annual fund gift?

A gift to an endowment is a permanent gift to UW CSE. The principal is invested, to grow over time, while the annual income provides a reliable stream of support to help CSE achieve its missions of learning, discovery, and engagement. More information here.
