    • Reserved, preferred seating at select campus events.
    • Borrower’s card to Miller Library that allows checking out two books for three weeks at no additional fee.
    • Use of the College’s athletic facilities for an additional $200 fee (payable prior to using facilities): Johnson Lifetime Fitness Center, Casey Swim Center, and Schottland Tennis Center.

    Discover the satisfaction of investing in education and joining like-minded benefactors who believe the College is one of George Washington’s greatest legacies to the nation. Unrestricted gifts at 1782 Society levels support the Washington Fund, an annual revenue source that enables the College to direct money to scholarships and other areas of highest priority. 

    1782 Society-level gifts may be made outright, by installment, by transfer of stock, or by credit card through our secure giving site. Any matching gifts received on a member’s behalf will be counted toward their giving level.
