2,182 Donors - $969,993 Donated

While the benefits of a GW School of Business (GWSB) education are immeasurable, we recognize the significant financial investment that continued education requires. Our students benefit directly from access to scholarships, and the allocation of these awards would not be possible without the support and donations of our wonderful community. Over half of the student body within GWSB relies on the financial relief this money provides, and the opportunities donations open to our students present enormous academic and extracurricular benefits. Especially during this time of national uncertainty, support for these initiatives ensures that GWSB students continue their education uninterrupted through the direct support of their own community.  


GWSB has been at the forefront of reimagining business education and has been recognized globally for its innovative approach. GWSB programs have improved across all major rankings by double digits in the last three years. Some of the notable rankings include:

#1 US/ #2 global in International Business (MBA)

#4 Online MBA

#5 Corporate Social Responsibility

#6 in International Business (Undergraduate)

#13 in online programs for Veterans

#27 in Entrepreneurship 

Your support on Giving Day enables us to prepare our students for a global business environment, facilitate groundbreaking research conducted by our esteemed faculty, and empower students to participate in unique, hands-on experiential opportunities around the world.

GWSB Student Aid

Over half of the 1,400+ students enrolled in undergraduate programs within GWSB rely on the financial relief provided through scholarships. The allocation of these awards is made possible through the generosity of our community to the Fund for Student Aid. This fund embodies the commitment to education and the future of tomorrow’s leaders. As GWSB works to propel our students into positions of global business leadership, your support of this fund provides the very foundation for success for students.

"I would like to express my sincerest gratitude for your commitment to the GWSB community and for funding this scholarship that has helped me navigate through my undergraduate degree. I hope to pay it forward to our future generation of bright-minded students just like you have." Melissa Cairo, GWSB '22

Dean’s Fund

Support of the School of Business Dean’s Fund enables GWSB leadership to provide funding to critical academic initiatives. The Dean’s Fund supports graduate student aid and faculty research through the direct support of their own community.  Especially during this time of national uncertainty, unrestricted support for innovative programming and technological advancement has ensured that GWSB students continue their academic and extracurricular pursuits uninterrupted.

Global Financial Literacy Excellence Center (GFLEC)

The Global Financial Literacy Excellence Center strives to create a world in which individuals have the financial knowledge to fully participate in the economy and to make informed decisions. Your donation to GFLEC will allow the team to create new financial education programs for vulnerable groups, fund a student research assistant who will gain valuable experience, and conduct research to find solutions that will tackle financial inequalities.

GW Investment Institute (GWII)

At the GW Investment Institute, our students learn by doing. We teach students how to invest and how to think about investing by giving them the tools to act as analysts and portfolio managers with real funds in the capital markets. Your support of GWII will provide additional funds for our students to interact within the market and will create programming to link students with industry professionals.

The Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence (CFEE)

The Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence strives to empower students by integrating entrepreneurial academic objectives within GW’s business community. Philanthropic support for CFEE contributes to research and activities that make significant contributions to the fields of entrepreneurship, innovation, women’s entrepreneurial leadership, and new venture development.

The Institute for Corporate Responsibility (ICR)

The Institute for Corporate Responsibility is devoted to corporate responsibility research and teaching. ICR is currently ranked 9th in the world and 5th in the U.S. for university corporate responsibility programs by the Financial Times. Funding will support ICR's mission to become the world’s leading intellectual center for scholarship in the field of corporate responsibility.
