Giving Day 2024

For 24 hours starting at noon on April 3, GW community members have the opportunity to make a difference as part of Giving Day, an annual philanthropic celebration highlighting various programs across GW including student scholarship and financial aid.

Daniel J. Burgner, the executive director of annual giving at GW, said the purpose of Giving Day is to create a sense of pride through philanthropy at the university.

“One of the best parts about Giving Day is that people can choose any area of the university to donate,” Burgner said. “We want our community to be excited to give to an area of the university they are passionate about.”

Donors will be able to see in real-time how the collective community effort is impacting students and faculty on the Giving Day website, which will feature heat maps, leaderboards and progress trackers.
