Every gift will have a direct impact on natural hazards-related research, student learning, and community outreach programs at the University of Washington. There are numerous ways your investment can make a difference to students and faculty studying natural hazards and resilient communities across the UW. Get started by checking out our featured list of gift funds, or take a look at the individual funds below!
This fund will support (1) ongoing and innovative new research and fieldwork and (2) the creation and delivery of important information to the public, concerning catastrophic natural hazards that pose significant economic, health, and other threats to human and environmental well-being. Such natural hazards include but are not limited to fire, landslides, earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, droughts, windstorms and floods.
To support research into wildland fire ecosystem conditions, impacts, and management.
Supports leading seismic research, including the ongoing development of rapid earthquake response systems made available to the world. Helps ESS scientists monitor earthquake related events and assists researchers to forecast the impact of events such as tsunamis, slides, and fault-line and aftershock activity.
To support an interdisciplinary cross-College effort on the early development of a Pacific NW land and sea-based tsunami and earthquake early warning system and associated geodetic scientific research.
To enable the University to attract and retain a distinguished faculty member who will conduct research in sensor networks by collaborating with faculty in other disciplines to advance the knowledge about and use of these networks.
