Support W&L

In 1796, George Washington made the first philanthropic gift to save the struggling Liberty Hall Academy. Since then, two-plus centuries of alumni and friends have given because they loved W&L, believed in its mission and wanted to ensure its success for future generations.

Gifts to the Annual Fund support every facet of W&L. Yearly donations provide as much as 8 percent of the University's operating budget and are the critical difference in W&L's ability to fulfill its educational mission by providing unrestricted dollars that support academic departments, faculty and student research, and financial aid.
