Evergreen students have a history of going beyond. In the classroom, they dig deep—going above and beyond the expectations established by our world-class faculty. They enter to learn then depart to serve, well-prepared with the skills and knowledge to be powerful advocates for social justice, diversity, and environmental conservation. As alumni, they passionately go further beyond, driving positive change in every field imaginable as thoughtful stewards of the world.

The support and confidence you’ve shown in me has helped me build on each success.

The Art of Giving is The Evergreen State College Foundation’s largest annual fundraiser, benefiting scholarships and educational opportunities for Evergreen students across Olympia, Tacoma and Western Washington. Contributions from donors, alumni, friends and businesses enhance the quality of the Evergreen experience and provide access for many students who might not otherwise be able to afford a college education.
