Get Involved

We all have reasons to be proud of the School of Veterinary Medicine, whether it’s the life-saving care your pet received in our teaching hospital, the education you received in our classrooms, or our leadership in research that helps save the lives of animal and people too.

For the school to remain a leader, we must expand and update our main building. Your support today will provide momentum to keep our plans on track and help us to train the next generation of veterinarians and biomedical researchers.

How you can be a hero


Join a special group of heroes who will keep our plans on track. Contact Pat Bowdish or Heidi Kramer for more information.

Individual recognition opportunities are available and allow the school to celebrate the generosity of campaign heroes who have shared gift commitments of $25,000 and more.

The school is actively working with eligible donors to make their selections. Recognition is being offered based on the size of campaign gift as well as timing in which gifts have been committed. Recognition options include spaces within the new addition as well as the existing building, and includes availability within the UW Veterinary Care teaching hospital, research, educational and multi-purpose spaces. Below are examples of recognition opportunities.

For specific availability and a complete list of options, contact Pat Bowdish or Heidi Kramer.
