Students Helping Students

The Senior Class Gift is an annual tradition where graduating seniors, their families and the community are asked to join together in a collective show of support and honor of the graduating class. This year the UW Tacoma Class of 2020 stands together to support the efforts in overcoming the changes we face in the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our fellow students are experiencing unprecedented hardships that may prevent them continuing their education or finishing their degrees. Many UW seniors and their families now find themselves in immensely challenging circumstances. Many have lost the jobs and income they rely on to cover their UW education and living expenses. Others face immediate food and housing insecurities or personal and family health crises.  Emergency resources available from state, federal or community sources often take at least a week, often longer, before they arrive in the hands of someone suffering a crisis. Emergency Aid at UW Tacoma is usually disbursed to the student within one or two days.

The UW Tacoma COVID-19 Emergency Student Fund provides unrestricted resources to UW Tacoma students who are experiencing financial hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. You can help bring relief to these students and prevent the disruption of their education.

Your gift today will help provide the following necessities for students in need:

  • Completion grants for graduating seniors
  • Tuition, books and supplies
  • Housing and living expenses
  • Technology for virtual learning
  • Child care
  • Unanticipated medical cost

Your support will make all the difference.

2020 Senior Class Gift

The Senior Class is strong, resilient, and committed to ensuring that their fellow students are supported no matter what circumstances they face. Show your Class of 2020 pride with a gift of $20.20


Utilities and WiFi

As students continue their studies from home, you can help mitigate the increased costs of utilities such as heating and electricity, or provide improved internet connectivity for virtual learning.



Social distancing measures are necessary to slowing the spread of COVID-19. You can limit the frequency of a student’s public exposure by providing them with more than a weeks’ worth of groceries at one time.


Medical Care

Now more than ever it is critical that students remain healthy. In the event that a student or family member they support becomes ill, you can help alleviate the financial strain of unanticipated medical care.



Stable housing is critical for student success in this moment of virtual learning and social distancing. You can supplement the cost of housing for a student struggling to pay rent or contribute to their family’s household expenses.
