Thanks to 65,000+ donors, GW has surpassed its $1 billion Making History Campaign goal more than a year ahead of schedule.

A billion dollars can do a lot of great, as you can see from the stories of students and faculty featured below.

The Making History Campaign will close on June 30, 2017.

Philanthropic support will continue to play a critical role in the success of GW students and faculty. We thank GW donors for their continued investment in our university’s future.
