Support CSE - Endowments
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 education, research and service.
Contributions to an endowment allow donors to create a lasting legacy - an investment in the present and the future. Because endowments provide a never-ending source of income, donors have the satisfaction of knowing that they are investing in CSE's mission, while ensuring that their own philanthropic goals are met.
CSE's endowment priorities are:
- Endowment for faculty excellence: Recruiting and retaining the finest faculty.
- Endowment for graduate student excellence: Competing for the strongest graduate students.
- Endowment for undergraduate student excellence: Enabling Washington's most outstanding high school students to attend UW CSE.
- Endowment for innovation and leadership: Facilitating special initiatives in learning, discovery, and engagement.
Lifetime endowment gifts of $25,000 and above are permanently recognized on the UW CSE Endowment Wall in the Allen Center atrium.
Named funds are available for gifts of $50,000 and above. Appropriate recognition, designed in consultation with each donor, is part of each gift that creates a named fund.
