Make a Gift

The Future of Ice Initiative is a unique interdisciplinary venture, made possible through the generous support of private donors, as well as institutional funding from various UW academic units including the College of the Environment Dean’s Office, Quaternary Research Center, Canadian Studies Center, Applied Physics Lab, Program on Climate Change and others.

Our ability to lead one of the world’s most comprehensive explorations into the scientific, cultural and economic changes in the polar regions (both Antarctic and Arctic) depends upon the continuing support of private donors. If you are interested in being a part of this exciting new effort, please contact either Marilyn Montgomery at or 206-221-0906, or Deanna Congdon at or 206-616-8902 for more information about ways to make your gift and to learn more about the Future of Ice Initiative’s priority goals.
