Why Give to Georgetown

Georgetown’s excellence and leadership in higher education depend greatly on the generosity of alumni, parents and friends. From annual gifts that make an immediate impact to endowed gifts that last for generations, contributions to Georgetown serve as a catalyst for positive change. Every gift we receive helps Georgetown enroll the most promising students, ensure the quality of our programs and facilities, affects Georgetown’s national ranking and inspires others to give as well.
