Giving at SAFS
For over 85 years, our program has contributed towards the basic understanding and science of aquatic and fishery resources, helping to determine how to best manage those resources now and for future generations.
Donations to the University of Washington (UW) School of Aquatic & Fishery Sciences (SAFS) provide critical support for our students, faculty and staff. In recent years, contributions have allowed us to increase the number of scholarship awards to our graduate and undergraduate students, and support student research and field projects that not only enrich our students’ academic life, but also better prepare them for careers in the discipline (see our Endowments website for examples of various funds).

A recent UW initiative resulted in a matching scholarship programStudents Firstwhich will provide financial support for undergraduate and graduate students. These scholarships will be awarded based on financial need for up to four years per student. In 2007, SAFS embarked on a new campaign designed specifically to support students in our School:
The SAFS Students First Endowment provides a 50% match from the UW for gifts $100,000 and above. Two features to this new initiative stand out: The $100,000 minimum can be made up of multiple gifts from any number of people in a “consortium” version. And while the deadline for making pledges is June 30, 2008, the pledge amount can be paid over five years.
