Georgetown Fund

The Georgetown Fund is the beneficiary of unrestricted gifts through our Annual Giving program. If you do not designate otherwise, your current-use gifts will automatically be assigned to the Georgetown Fund.

Georgetown directs 100% of Georgetown Fund gifts to 1789 Scholarships for undergraduate students. These scholarships are critical to fulfilling the university’s single highest philanthropic priority: ensuring access and affordability for all admitted undergraduate students.

Nearly 40 years ago, Georgetown made a transformational decision to admit students on a need-blind basis and to meet the full demonstrated financial need of all admitted undergraduates from the United States. This commitment‚ÄĒa direct outgrowth of the centuries-old Jesuit tradition of providing access to higher education‚ÄĒpropelled Georgetown into the competitive ranks of the nation‚Äôs leading universities.

Increasing the number of scholarships funded through philanthropy helps fulfill the university’s commitment to bring the best students to campus, regardless of their ability to pay, while enabling Georgetown to seize additional opportunities to keep the school competitive.
