Make an impact today by documenting your future gift!
The Legacy Match is a matching gift program that enables UW alumni and friends to have an immediate impact when they make planned gifts to support the university. Planned gifts include bequests in a will or living trust, retirement plan beneficiary designations, and much more.
When you document a planned gift to UW, you can immediately direct Legacy Match funds to a purpose that resonates with you, such as scholarships or support for a specific school or program. When you document your gift with a simple one-page form, 10 percent of the estimated value of your future gift to UW will be matched, up to $10,000.
A pool of unrestricted matching funds is available on a first-come first-served basis to donors who are 60 and older and are documenting a new planned gift. The Legacy Match program will end when the matching funds have been depleted. The Legacy Match was created by the UW Foundation Board of Directors and a private gift directed to the UW Foundation.
