Seattle U Gives 2022 
Thursday, February 24, 2022 
Midnight to Midnight 

When alumni (like you!) come together for Seattle U Gives, there's nothing we can't achieve. Last year, your time, energy and support catapulted Seattle U Gives to record-breaking success, raising over 3,500 gifts totaling more than $575,000. Every gift—whether $5, $10 or $100—has spent the last year providing essential resources for thousands of students, equipping them with the tools and experiences needed to build a better, brighter future for all. 

“With donor contributions, I’m able to focus solely on school without being overwhelmed by financial burdens. Your support has established wonderful communities, supported the faculty I get to learn from and empowered my peers. Thank you!” Jamie, ’23 

“I’d like to thank all the donors for everything they’ve done to make my education possible, whether that’s generous scholarships, the Career Engagement Office or keeping class sizes small. Thanks to you, I’m going to be able to apply to medical school this year!” Max, ’22 

This year, our Redhawks are counting on you to take action again! Join us on Thursday, February 24th to celebrate another 24 hours of generosity and impact. 


Save the date to make your gift: Thursday, February 24, 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. 

What did you value most during your time as a student at Seattle University? Was it a scholarship that helped you overcome financial barriers? An extracurricular activity like a club or society? Athletic opportunities? Small class sizes, dedicated professors and a mission-driven education? During Seattle U Gives, you can contribute directly to the areas you loved most as a student, enhancing those experiences for current and future generations of Redhawks. 

This year, your dollars will stretch further than ever before. Each gift—regardless of size—can be designated towards one of our numerous cause-specific challenges. When enough alums contribute, thousands of additional dollars will be unlocked!
