UW Combined Fund Drive

Together we give back

The UW Combined Fund Drive (UWCFD) is the University of Washington’s workplace giving campaign, which provides faculty, staff and retirees the opportunity to give to their favorite charities through payroll deduction or a one-time gift. This year’s campaign runs Oct. 1-Nov. 30, 2018.

Whether you are on our Seattle, Bothell or Tacoma campuses or at Harborview or the UW Medical Center, you can give through UWCFD to make a difference in your community and beyond.
