Why Give?

There are many reasons to give your Senior Class Gift to GW. Here are just a few: 

  • You Choose: YOU have the opportunity to make your mark anywhere at the University. Choose from over hundreds of allocations when making your gift. These funds include your college, Greek Life, KACIF, athletic programs, student life, and many more.

  • Support Your Student Organization: Student organizations helped us find our place at GW, and now you have the opportunity to help future GW students in those same organizations. 

  • It Has Impacted You: The Senior Class Gift Campaign makes a profound impact on every area of campus. No matter your major or extracurricular activities, your time at GW was made better by previous seniors' gifts.

  • Luther Rice Society: Students interested in a long-term commitment to supporting GW can make a sustaining annual pledge of $250 ($20.83/month) to the designation of their choice. These donors will be invited to join the GW Luther Rice Society and, as a benefit of membership, will be invited to a reception at the F-Street House in mid-May along with being recognized in the Senior Class Gift Honor Roll.

  • Make History: Wouldn’t it be great if your class held the record for the highest Class Gift participation rate at GW? 

  • Increase GW’s ranking in U.S. News & World Report: Did you know that donor participation has an effect on the rankings for top universities? The more people who give back to GW, the better it ranks, and the better you and your degree looks .
