Our philanthropic mission is specifically driven by our foundational goal to cultivate a sense of community locally by promoting equal opportunity and fairness. To do so, we will participate in and support programs here in Seattle which align with this ideal.
*Keep in mind, in order to be a Gold Member, you must attend at least one Philanthropy Event per quarter.
One of our annual philanthropy events is preparing Thanksgiving baskets for families in need at the YWCA. We get together to shop for turkeys, stuffing, pies, and other yummy goodies to help these families have a fun-filled Thanksgiving. This year we are proud to have supported eight deserving families.
Relay for Life
Each spring, the UW holds a school-wide Relay event in Husky Stadium. UWiB is proud to be a participant in this event, raising money throughout the year for the American Cancer Society and bonding throughout the fundraiser.
YWCA Halloween Party
Another annual philanthropy event that UWiB sets up each year is the Halloween party at the YWCA, where members arrive in costumes and celebrate the spooky season with the children of the YWCA. This is part of continuing friendship with the YWCA that UWiB is glad to be a part of.
