Each year, generous alumni, parents, and friends create challenge funds to encourage support for the university by increasing the impact of your gift. Take a look at the current selection of giving challenges to see if any match your giving interests.


Don’t forget WashU on #GivingTuesday!

Contribute any amount to Washington University on November 29 and you’ll help us meet our #GivingTuesday challenge. And, if 1,500 alumni, parents, and friends participate, WashU will receive an additional $100,000 in generous support from WashU parents Ilsa Conde-Sánchez and Luis Sánchez, parents of Armando, Arts & Sciences Class of 2022.
