Many of our alumni, donors and friends have asked how they can help students during the COVID-19 crisis. Gifts to the Seattle University Student Emergency Needs Fund help students impacted financially by the COVID-19 crisis who are struggling with access to food, housing, and other financial burdens during the pandemic. Gifts of all sizes will enable Seattle U to ensure that our students have the resources they need during this extraordinarily challenging time. To date, nearly 500 students with urgent financial need have received awards and Seattle U will continue to make awards as student requests are received.
Seattle University’s Jesuit-inspired education provides academic excellence with a commitment to educating the whole person, to professional formation and to serving our community and the world by addressing society’s most vital issues.

Contributions to Seattle U help position the university as our region's prominent STEM educator, ensure the ongoing vitality of campus life and the student experience through programs and events, and change the lives of students through scholarship support.
