Supporting student well-being

Georgetown’s strength is inextricably tied to our students’ talent and success. At a time of great crisis, dislocation, and financial strain, we must redouble our longstanding investment in support and resources to ensure that every student can thrive.

Ensuring safe and healthy campuses

Georgetown has developed a completely new infrastructure to ensure continuity of our teaching and research mission, and to prepare our community for a time when we can all be safely together again. Our community will play a crucial role in supporting that ongoing work—and our institution’s long-term health.

Serving others through discovery and impact

We are compelled to deploy Georgetown’s expertise in critical areas—including medical research, racial justice, and technology’s impact in society—in service to our D.C. community and the world. Now, more than ever, we must accelerate this work.

Unlock the power of creative philanthropy

Meaningful philanthropy doesn’t have to be complicated. These three key questions will help guide your approach and grow your impact.
