Give to What Matters Most

Now is your chance to support the Seattle U programs that inspired you most. Whether giving to expand access to this transformative education or to strengthen the programs and opportunities that create it, your generosity will have an immediate impact on the lives of our students.

Help us build a better future for all. Our moment is now. Let’s seize it together.

The SU Fund

Whichever aspect of SU you love the most, the SU Fund helps make it possible. This versatile fund supports scholarships, strengthens instruction and campus services, and during times of crisis—like COVID, fires and floods—provides the flexibility needed to direct resources where they’re needed most. Give today to help fuel this vital resource.

Scholarships

Education has the power to change lives and shape the future. Unfortunately, for many students this experience isn’t possible without help. Seattle U awards more than $5.4 million in scholarships each year to undergraduate students, but unmet need continues to surpass available dollars. Give today to help close the gap and create equitable access.

Schools and Colleges

Seattle University has six main schools and colleges, each housing stellar faculty, highly ranked programs and unique hands-on learning opportunities. Whether you’d like to support a flexible Dean’s Fund, research and mentorship, new facilities, or program-specific scholarships and centers, your gift will make a difference for our students and faculty.

The Seattle University Youth Initiative (SUYI)

Combining a “cradle-to-career” network of 150 community organizations supporting neighborhood youth and families with dozens of service, learning and research opportunities for Seattle U students, faculty and staff—SUYI unites the university and the wider community to develop successful youth, thriving communities and a nationally renowned place-based approach to education. Give today to support this groundbreaking example of SU’s social justice mission in action.

Student Life

In keeping with the Jesuit tradition of cura personalis, Seattle University is committed to developing each student as a whole person—in mind, body and spirit. This includes creating opportunities for Redhawks to stretch their leadership wings and explore their interests through clubs, intramural sports and student government, as well as providing individualized support through numerous health, spirituality and identity resources. Give today to ensure every student has opportunities to learn, grow and explore their passions beyond the classroom.

Athletics

The Redhawk student-athlete experience integrates competitive intercollegiate athletics with the values of a Jesuit Catholic education, maximizing personal, spiritual, intellectual and physical growth. Our eight men’s and ten women’s teams are known for success on the field and in the classroom, as well as their robust volunteerism and community engagement. Give today to help our student-athletes access the equipment, training and support they deserve.

Bridging the Gap To Education

Marika Yaplee did everything in her power to realize her dream of attending Seattle University. Her family had no financial resources to contribute, so she had to figure out how to pay for Seattle U herself.
