About

Change a Student’s Life and Open the Door to Possibilities

Your support on Giving Day expands scholarship opportunities and helps students open the door to their fullest potential. The knowledge, talent, and accomplishments of our students are amplified by your generosity. By supporting GW students this Giving Day, you help future generations of innovators, leaders, and creators. Will you join us and open doors?  

Ways you can support GW:

Student Scholarships 

Expanding the number of deserving students who are able to receive need-based scholarship support is one of GW’s most critical needs. Not being able to afford a GW education can be a deterrent for brilliant students who wish to attend our university. Nearly half of GW’s undergraduates qualify for need-based financial aid so increased philanthropy is essential. Even after scholarships, federal grants, loans, work study jobs and family contributions, many GW undergraduate students still face an annual financial gap of $3,000 to $6,000. 

Without additional philanthropic investment, we are unable to meet students’ needs. By supporting scholarships, you help ensure that talented GW students, regardless of financial resources, can pursue their studies and take full advantage of the GW experience. 

"With this scholarship, I am able to attend GW and focus on my studies rather than worrying about excessive debt. I feel encouraged that donors believe in investing in my education; this pushes me to work harder and make more of my undergraduate education at GW. I look forward to making an impact in the world thanks to my GW education and your generosity!" Sydney Kleingartner, SEAS ’22

Schools and Units 

There are many components to the incomparable GW experience. One of the most essential is the community created for students within their school or unit, which fosters each student’s academic and personal growth. By supporting schools, colleges, and athletics, you directly impact the forces that shape the direction of our students’ lives. Whether it is being involved in research, participating on a team, or learning from an award-winning professor, experiences shape our students and contribute to their future selves and the greater world. Make a gift to schools, colleges, and athletics, and make a difference.  

Make a gift this Giving Day. Open the door. Change the world one GW student at a time.
