Last Week to Give Highlights!


  • Make a wish come true! We’ve got some great opportunities for you to make the holiday season – and the coming year – a little brighter. Check out it out!
  • CFD Charity Sweepstakes – LAST DAY TO PARTICIPATE

Thanks to our sponsors at TwinStar Credit Union, the Charity Sweepstakes is back! Any state employee (including UW peeps)  or retiree who starts or increases their recurring payroll contributions by $2 or more, will be entered into a drawing to win $2,000 for their favorite charity!  This promotion runs through November 27th! For more rules and information, click here. This is a great opportunity to share with your colleagues! I upped my monthly donation to one of my favorite organizations. Your fave organization gets a little extra and maybe gets a lot extra? Win-Win.

Tuesday: The Giving Tuesday Silent Auction is back! We’ve got lots of great stuff and your purchase will support NAMI – Seattle. The Auction will be open from 7 – 7 – one day only! We’ve got gift cards, great experiences, tons of Husky swag & an overnight stay at the Westin! Bid on your fave items and share the auction link with the folks in your department! There are some great items here to give the gift of experience this year for the holidays!

Wednesday:  PUPcorn Wednesday. Join us in the Tower for Popcorn Wednesday and think about the pups (or kittens) in your life by supporting a local animal shelter. Animals are amazing companions and support better mental health.

Thursday: Buzzfeed Quiz Thursday. Our CA team is putting together an amazing quiz so you can see what UW Alum you are most like. Are you a Beverly Cleary or a Bruce Lee? Consider making a donation to one of the scholarship funds.

Friday: Final Food Friday. Stay tuned for a link to support our campus food pantries.
