Consistent annual support is a cornerstone of the George Washington University’s effort to make an impact on the world. Annual gifts, each and every year, sustain our students and faculty who strive to make history each and every day.
Established in 2014, GW Loyal was created to honor our most committed donors, those who understand the importance of this consistent support to the university.
Alumni, parents, faculty, staff, friends, and students who give any amount, to any area of the university, for two or more consecutive fiscal years (July 1-June 30) are recognized as members of GW Loyal.
The Drive to Thrive
Gratitude, loyalty, and commitment to success fuel Elliott School alum’s support for 34 years and counting.

In 1989, Mark Lederman, BBA '76, MS '81, began 25 years of giving to GW. His daughter, Jodi, BA '13 is continuing the tradition by becoming a founding member of GW Loyal.
“My scholarship gave me peace of mind. It made it possible for me to spend evenings on the 3rd floor of Gelman focusing on my studies, instead of working day and night to pay for school. Five years ago GW was just a dream, and alumni support every year made it a reality.”
Natalie Trochimiuk, SEAS '14
“People had more faith in me than I had in myself. I woke up with an email in my inbox saying I had received the Dirk Brady Scholarship and it will cover all four years at GW. That moment changed my life.”
Marwan Sulaiman, ESIA '14
"I don’t know if people realize that money is hope for people in my situation. GW provided me with the funds to attend college. GW believed in me and where I was going."
