About


In recognition of Gonzaga's 200th birthday, we have launched Gonzaga's 200th Anniversary Challenge. Our goal is 1,821 donors to our annual fund in the month of June -- a nod to our school's founding year, and a celebration of Gonzaga's 200 years of outstanding Jesuit education in the nation’s capital.

The video on this page was played at the Forever Gonzaga Bicentennial Gala in April, and features photos of some of Gonzaga's great icons and traditions over the years. As we all know, Gonzaga is a school blessed with many traditions. However, perhaps its greatest one is an attitude of gratitude that has helped us fulfill our Jesuit mission in the heart of the nation’s capital for two centuries.

As we approach the end of this fiscal year, please consider expressing your gratitude for the impact Gonzaga has had on your life with a gift to our annual fund, the Gonzaga Fund.


Gifts to the Gonzaga Fund, our annual fund, touch every aspect of the student experience on Eye Street. Your generosity has an impact by enabling us to:

  • Offer need-based financial aid to one-third of our students
  • Keep tuition significantly below our per-student cost
  • Maintain and improve our historic, urban campus 
  • Retain our talented and dedicated faculty and staff
  • Provide service opportunities and retreats that motivate Gonzaga students to live as Men for Others

Help us celebrate our Bicentennial with a gift to the Gonzaga Fund. Your generosity not only acknowledges the icons and traditions that shaped your time at Gonzaga, but also ensures an even better Eye Street experience for the next generation of Gonzaga students. Thank you!

"Gonzaga is anything but a one man band. And that's my point. People make the place. Many people."

These words, featured in the video below and spoken by former Gonzaga President Father Allen Novotny at the St. Al's Dinner in October 2010, help to capture the spirit of community and generosity that have defined Eye Street for more than two centuries. 

As our fiscal year concludes, this sentiment holds particularly true. It is indeed the collective impact of our entire community—including you—that will help us continue to deliver on our Jesuit mission here at Gonzaga. 

We hope you enjoy this video, featuring some of Gonzaga's great icons, traditions, and moments. Thank you to everyone who has contributed thus far to our 200th Anniversary Challenge. If you have not yet given, there's still time. Please make your gift today in honor of our beloved school and in gratitude for the many people who have given of themselves so that Gonzaga can continue to thrive.
