2019 Summer Soiree: Fundraiser for Emergency Aid at UW Tacoma

  • It is estimated that nearly 3 million students face a financial crisis of one form or another and leave school over an expense of less than $1,000. 
  • This kind of unexpected financial expense could be related to medical bills, funeral expenses, housing or utility costs, the breakdown of a car, etc. In many cases, the students who are affected leave quietly, unwilling to ask for help or not knowing how to access support. 
  • Over the past year, UW Tacoma’s emergency response team has addressed more than 100 student emergencies and distributed $15,000 in support – and we think this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Online registration for the 2019 Summer Soiree is currently closed.  If you are still interested in attending the event please call the Office of Advancement at 253-692-5753 to check for availability.
