Flag Day 2017


Flag Day 2017


Wednesday, April 12, marked the third annual GW Flag Day, a campus-wide effort to educate students, faculty, and staff about the ways in which philanthropy enables the Colonial experience.

George Washington's Commander-in-Chief flag was prominently displayed around campus to help identify the people and places supported by philanthropy.

Students participated in campus activities

  • A record-breaking 1,400 thank you cards were written to alumni donors in Kogan Plaza
  • First-ever Philanthroquest to learn about famous philanthropic landmarks and win prizes
  • School stations offered ways to learn more about donations at work in your school
