GW Cares

At GW, we create a community that cares for one another. The college experience can often be challenging, and asking for help can be difficult. The CARE Team reaches out to our students to offer support so that they can be as successful as possible from their first-year right through graduation.

Family Philanthropy

Family philanthropy plays a crucial role in building and shaping an exemplary educational experience for GW students. Families support students through internships and career opportunities and through financial contributions that impact all areas of student life. An important aspect of family support at GW is the Family Leadership Circle, a group of parents and families who contribute philanthropic gifts and engage with our greater GW community
