Washington and Lee values its storied past. But it remains "not unmindful of the future." Preserving our distinctive identity and leadership requires constant dedication. To that end, the University is mounting its most ambitious campaign.
With a goal of $500 million, this comprehensive campaign will be historic not only for this University, but for liberal arts education nationally. It will focus on the people who are at the heart of the Washington and Lee experience, our tradition of academic innovation, caring for our historic campus, and creating financial flexibility through the Annual Fund.
The majority of these giving opportunities--nearly 70% of the total campaign goal--is designated for endowment in support of the people and programs that are at the heart of the Washington and Lee experience.
