I Want to Give


Your donation plays a vital role in the Center’s work. Your support allows us to remain independent and able to respond to key issues. The Center’s neutral guidance can transform conflict to cooperation, but not without you!

Giving to the Impact Fund provides the Center with unrestricted support to meet the Center’s most pressing needs, to do pro bono work, and to quickly take action on emerging opportunities.

*Unrestricted gifts may be allocated to the Endowment Fund depending on Center priorities.

Ruckelshaus Center Endowment Fund

Gifting to the Ruckelshaus Center Foundation Endowment is helping create a perpetual source of funding to enable the Center to equip citizens of the Pacific Northwest with the tools they need to solve problems together for the long term.

About Your Gift

  • WSU handles the donation processing for the Ruckelshaus Center as part of the joint agreement between the University of Washington and Washington State University. The links above will take you to the WSU donation page but rest assured that your gift is being directed into the Ruckelshaus Center Impact Fund  or the Ruckelshaus Center Endowment Fund (whichever you select) from the fund links.

  • Your gift qualifies for soft credit at both Washington State University and University of Washington. If you would like to not receive soft credit at one or both of the universities, please contact  Chris Page by email or call 206.770.6060.
