UW Law community steps up big on Husky Giving Day

Each spring, Husky Giving Day provides opportunities to support programs and causes people are most passionate about — and this year, the UW Law community came out in force to do just that.

More than 80 donors raised over $41,000 that directly supports public interest at UW Law while creating scholarship opportunities for law students from underrepresented communities.

Over the course of 24 hours, Law Dawgs from across the globe unlocked three gift-matching opportunities — two Law Justice Scholarship challenges and one Public Interest Law Association challenge — while keeping the UW School of Law in the Top 20 units across the UW for participation in all areas of support.

The gift-matching opportunities were provided by some of the law school’s most generous alumni and supporters: The Honorable Bobbe J. Bridge, J.D. ’76, and Jonathan J. Bridge, J.D. ’76; Greg Gorder, J.D. ’85, and Val Gorder; and Kent Carlson, J.D. ’67, and Sandy Carlson, B.A. ’64.

In total, the University of Washington raised more than $2.7 million from more than 6,300 gifts.

Thank you to everyone who gave this Husky Giving Day — and to those who donate their time, mentorship and professional opportunities throughout the year to the next generations of lawyer-leaders.

The impacts law students create every day would not be possible without the incredible generosity and support of the UW Law community year in and year out.
