Evans School Critical Need Fund

The Evans School Class of 2020 and Interim Dean Alison Cullen invite you to join in supporting students with a gift to the Evans School Critical Need Fund. Gifts made to the fund will be used to provide financial support to Evans School students experiencing a state of emergency that threatens their ability to reach their full academic potential and/or achieve their optimal educational experience.

In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, supporting Evans School students is particularly important as many students and graduates are navigating an uncertain job market, and some may find themselves unable to work. Living and attending graduate school in Seattle is expensive. Without enough savings to draw from, an unexpected expense or a reduction in hours at work can be a huge setback for students, jeopardizing their ability to attend class or to focus their full attention on their education. Thank you for supporting our Evans Community at this time. 

Choose a giving level


Stronger Together

Your gift, no matter the size, can mean the world to a student in need. Together, we can ensure that Evans School students are supported no matter what they face.


Lost Wages

Many students will face financial insecurity in the coming months as a result of lost wages from jobs affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. $16.39 represents Seattle's minimum wage and can help replace one hour's worth of missed work opportunities.


Class of 2020

The Evans School Class of 2020 is strong, resilient, and committed to ensuring that their fellow students are supported no matter what circumstances they face. Honor them and their commitment with a gift of $20.20


Monthly Utilities

$50 could be used to help support these students pay their monthly internet or electricity bills, which will be critical to their success while the UW delivers its courses via remote learning this quarter.



Evans School students experiencing sudden financial insecurities may need basic necessities like groceries. Your $100 gift could go a long way for a student who is experiencing a lack of income as a result of COVID-19.


Unexpected Travel Costs

You can help mitigate an unexpected transportation cost like a plane ticket. Many students who planned on living on campus during Spring Quarter might need to travel home for remote learning.


Emergency Medical Expenses

$500 can help cover an unexpected medical expense or prescription medications for a student.


Community Champion

With your generous donation of $1,000 we can support multiple students or ensure that a student experiencing greater need is fully supported and able to meet all their basic needs on a regular basis. The cost of education goes beyond tuition and there are many factors that affect a student's trajectory.
