The Year in Numbers

The support came in by the millions and in 10s and 20s, adding up to a banner year. The philanthropy of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, corporations, foundations and others—even students—in the fiscal year that ended June 30 amounted to $232.2 million, making it the largest fundraising year in GW history.

Among the highlights, gifts to the endowment, which totaled $43 million, increased by more than 40 percent over the previous year, and donations to student aid through the Power & Promise Fund hit $16.7 million. Annual giving—which includes donations under $50,000 that provide immediate funding for university needs—grew by 25 percent in FY15. Here's a closer look at annual giving donors and their impact.
