The Art of Giving Gala & Auction

Good Company. Unique Experiences. A Great Cause.

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.

Gather with us for an evening Beyond the Woods celebrating students’ success and investing in their futures!

To me donors are heroes and it is my goal to one day start a scholarship fund of my own and touch people's lives the way that you have touched mine.

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.
