Ways to Give

Thank you for considering a gift to the George Washington University.  Your support is an integral part of our students' success every year.

We encourage you to make a gift to the area of GW that is most meaningful to you. Choose the method that's right for you to make a tax-deductible contribution.

Credit Card or Check

Give by credit card via our secure online giving form or call 800-789-2611.

Gifts made by check should be payable to the George Washington University and mailed to:
The George Washington University
2100 M Street, NW, Suite 310
Washington, D.C. 20052
 

Planned Giving

With a planned gift, you can support GW's efforts to provide student financial aid, hire the highest quality professors, conduct groundbreaking research, and provide state-of-the-art facilities. Discover how a planned gift can benefit you and GW.
 

Real Estate

Donating property to GW can provide important tax advantages while eliminating the responsibility of property management. Depending on the gift arrangement, you may also benefit from a lifetime income stream, cash back from the gift transaction, or even retain the right to continue living in a property you donate.
 

Stocks and Securities

A gift of stocks or securities to GW can be arranged via electronic transfer or by receipt of stock certificates.  The gift provides a full income tax deduction, negates capital gains tax, and may also avoid estate taxes.

We would be happy to talk to you, your lawyer, or tax adviser about the advantages of making a gift of appreciated assets such as stocks or bonds. For more information, please contact John Kendrick at jbk01@gwu.edu or 202-994-6131.
 

Gifts-in-Kind

From the rare banking documents of presidents and senators to works of art to dinners purchased for students, gifts-in-kind are priceless for the inspiration and knowledge they impart to GW students and friends.

For more information about donating a collection of knowledge and inspiration, please contact John Kendrick at jbk01@gwu.edu or 202-994-6131.

If you are interested in providing career advice to students over dinner, sign up to host a dinner with alumni.
 

Employer Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor programs that match charitable contributions made by their employees, allowing you to double or even triple the value of your gift. Find out if your employer matches gifts

If you have questions, contact GW Annual Giving at giving@gwu.edu or 202-994-5303.
 

Endowed Gifts

Gifts of all kinds may be designated as a long-term investment through an endowment.  Endowed gifts create a permanent legacy for scholarships, helping generations of students attend GW, or an endowed faculty position may be created to bring the best professors and researchers to GW to work with our students.  Learn more about creating a powerful legacy for GW students.
