Annual Giving

Annual Giving is the ongoing support provided by our alumni, parents, students, and friends each year. These contributions provide an immediate source of funding for the university, with the flexibility to allow us to support programs, research projects, and hands-on learning experiences not normally covered by tuition. The extra income generated from annual gifts is needed continually to ensure that our facilities and curriculum are the best available.

GSW Wall of Honor

Recurring annual gifts are crucial to program expansion and donors are recognized by giving levels. The President’s Circle is a membership program offered to annual donors who have given over $1000 in the previous year. President’s Circle members are recognized on the GSW Donor Wall of Honor in the Wheatley Administration Building, invited to a recognition ceremony in their honor, published in the Aeolian magazine, and receive newsworthy updates from President Weaver. Donors who have attained cumulative giving over $25,000 are also recognized by levels on the Donor Wall of Honor.
