A GUIDE TO YOUR IMPACT AND BENEFITS
AS A UW TYEE CLUB MEMBER
I am Ty
2 TYEE CLUB MEMBERSHIP GUIDE
Dear Tyee Club members,
What does it mean to be Tyee?
In the language of the Pacic Northwest’s
Chinook tribe, the word ‘tyee’ means ‘leader.
When you proclaim, ‘I am Tyee’, it means you
step up as a leader for Husky student-athletes
by providing the nancial support that creates
champions — in competition and in life.
In this guide, you’ll learn about the important
impact you make and about the rewards you’ll
receive for your contributions. As we celebrate
the successful Game Changer Campaign
for Husky Athletics and look to build on the
campaign’s incredible momentum, we will
continue to count on your leadership.
You are the foundation of all we do.
You are Tyee.

I took a leap of faith to come to
Washington. Now, I’ll be graduating in

lifelong friendships with my teammates,

reach my potential as an athlete and as
a man.
On behalf of all the student-athletes
who are beneting from your generosity
today, thank you. Thank you for giving us
a chance to play the sports we love while
we’re here, to earn a college degree

when I become a game changer
12 TYEE CLUB MEMBERSHIP GUIDE
There’s a moment in almost every game
when some magical happens, when the
momentum swings and you feel more
condent, when you know that anything
is possible if you just follow the game
plan and give it your all.
That’s what Tyee Club donors do for
me and my teammates and every
Washington student-athlete. You give
us the support we need to build our
condence and do our best — on the
court, in the classroom and in life.
You are a game changer for each of us.
Thank you!

When we launched The Game Changer Campaign for
Husky Athletics, people like you rallied around this
vision in spectacular ways. Those who donated $50,000
or more earned the title Game Changer, making an
extraordinary impact.
As the costs of scholarships, team travel, facilities, and
other crucial needs continue to escalate, we recognize
that we’ll always need dedicated Game Changers to
help our student-athletes learn, compete and grow.
If you’re already a Game Changer, consider sustaining
your support with a new life-changing gift. If you’re
considering changing the game for the rst time, we'd
be honored to share more about how your gift will
make a dierence. Your contribution will be dedicated
to The Competitive Edge Fund and will earn you:
Invitations to exclusive events with Husky coaches,
student-athletes and sta
Unique discounts, game-day experiences and post-
season benets
Online and print recognition
2 priority points per $100 (gifts of $100,000 or more)
All gifts to The Competitive Edge Fund are tax-deductible
and qualify you for the benets listed on page 26.

16 TYEE CLUB MEMBERSHIP GUIDE
Because our donors care so much about
us, Men’s Golf was able to take a trip
of a lifetime this fall to Ireland, where
we played on six of the most amazing
courses in the world. We honed our skills,
bonded as a team, and learned about
Irish culture and history.
At home or abroad, I’m so grateful for
the opportunities you give us to live our
academic and athletic dreams at the
University of Washington. I will always
be grateful for the experiences you’ve
made possible.

when I establish an endowment
20 TYEE CLUB MEMBERSHIP GUIDE
Through volleyball, I have earned the
opportunity to have my education paid
for, which is something I never thought
could happen when I was little. I have
also had the opportunity to travel the
world while playing, which is such an
incredible experience. I have met some
of my best life-long friends through this
sport as well.
By supporting our program in such
generous ways, I have been able to fulll
a dream of mine: To play the sport I love
at one of the highest levels, and at one of
the best venues in the nation.

ESTABLISH
AN ENDOWMENT
No other gift creates as lasting a tribute to your love
for the Huskies than establishing an endowment.
When you endow a scholarship, a coaching position
or a program, your generosity to UW Athletics will live
on forever. Because the principal of your gift remains
intact, with the proceeds providing an ongoing source
of support, your endowment will support the Huskies
for generations.
Scholarships are one of Husky Athletics’ largest
annual expenses. When you endow a scholarship,
you give a student-athlete the opportunity for
a world-class education at the University of
Washington. An endowed coaching or sta position
will enhance our success in bringing exciting new
talent to Washington and keeping the great sta we
already have. Team or program endowments help
cover discretionary expenditures that can enhance a
student-athlete’s college experience.
Endowment gifts may be pledged over time, and
qualify you for priority points and special benets.

when I leave a legacy
24 TYEE CLUB MEMBERSHIP GUIDE
Today, even aer trips to the College
World Series, even aer living this
dream every single day, building the
strongest friendships I’ll ever have with
my amazing teammates and awesome
coaches… sometimes I’ll nd myself on
the eld, looking around, and still not
quite believing that a small-town girl like
me is really here.
When I graduate in June with a degree in
sociology, I hope to play soball in Japan.
I’d love to be an ineld coach one day.
And I might like to be a teacher, too.
Wherever I am, whatever I do… I will
always be a very proud Husky. I will
always love soball. And I will always be
grateful for your generosity and support.
