GW Loyal



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 for excellence 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, families, 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.
