Community, Citizenship & Leadership

Student organizations introduce themselves to potential new members on the Quad.

Help students find their place at GW, extend learning beyond the classroom, inculcate leadership ability, engage in reflective practice, develop intercultural competence, and infuse student life with our namesake’s legacy and values.

GW offers many extracurricular activities, including over 450 student organizations and 42 Greek organizations. Your donations can help students have fun and go beyond the classroom to actively help people and address some of the most important issues of our time.

  • For many alumni, student organization activities are among their fondest GW memories. Your gift to a specific GW student organization supports members’ academic, leadership, career, and social development. Through their organizations, you gift will help students to have their own #onlyatGW moments.
  • Your gift to Fraternity and Sorority Life supports the leadership, career, and personal development of Greek organization members through activities like the annual Greek Leadership Retreat and Greek Week.
  • The Dr. Robert A. Chernak Opportunity Fund for Student Engagement supports student efforts and interests to pursue and create opportunities.
