Wilma Bradley Matching Challenge will amplify UW CSE alumni giving

Wilma BradleyWilma Bradley, a longtime friend and generous supporter of UW CSE, has established a $1 million matching fund aimed at promoting alumni giving toward construction of a second computer science building on the UW campus. The new fund will match, dollar for dollar, multi-year pledges by recent alumni that total between $5,000 and $50,000 — enabling young alumni to double (or more, if a corporate match is applied) the impact of their personal gifts to CSE2.

For more than 20 years, Bradley has been passionate about expanding educational opportunities to more students at UW CSE. In that time, she has maintained close ties to the program and created an endowed fellowship and an endowed chair. Now, she is keen to support CSE2 while demonstrating the power of philanthropy by encouraging a new generation to become active partners in their alma mater’s future growth.

The Wilma Bradley Matching Challenge is open to UW CSE alums who received their bachelor’s degrees between 2006 and 2016. The match will be applied to pledges received by June 30, 2017 or until the fund is depleted, whichever comes first. To date, nearly $130,000 in donations from CSE alums have been matched through Bradley’s generosity. Learn more about this exciting new opportunity to support CSE’s expansion here.

Thank you, Wilma, for your generous support of our program and our students. You are an inspiration!
