G-Give is a phenomenal program originally conceived and implemented by UW CSE alums Krista Davis and Jessan Hutchison-Quillian at Google’s Seattle engineering office. Each year during the first week of December, gifts by Googler’s to select non-profits are matched twice – once by Google itself, and once by Googlers who sponsor the specific non-profit.
2014 is the fourth year of G-Give, and the fourth year that UW CSE’s Google Endowed Scholarship has been included. Our Google Endowed Scholarship makes it possible for great students to get a UW CSE education, regardless of their financial situation, despite the increases in tuition that are inevitable given the dramatic decrease in state support for UW in recent years.
Thanks to 150 friends and alumni who donated, 7 friends and alumni who matched as sponsors, and Google’s corporate match, $189,344 was raised for the Google Endowed Scholarship last week! The endowment now totals $1.13 million – CSE’s largest undergraduate scholarship endowment by nearly a factor of two.
Thank you to our 150 donors and to our 7 matching sponsors: Jeff Dean, Alan Eustace, Gene Morgan, Alyssa Pittman, Jeff Prouty, Matt Welsh, and Doug Zongker.
