UW Health’s community relations program collaborates with internal and external partners to help achieve our social responsibility mission.

Contributions and Sponsorships

UW Health provides donations and sponsorships to hundreds of organizations each year. Community relations manages many of these using our UW Health contributions and sponsorships guidelines. If you have an inquiry about donations or sponsorships, please review the guidelines and contact us in writing.

See organizations supported by UW Health from all sources.

As part of this process, community relations manages our attendance at community events including walks, runs, and other large-team events. If you are interested in becoming a team captain or otherwise getting involved, please let us know.

In addition, the community relations team supports employee-directed giving at UW Health.
