W&L's recognition club honoring our most outstanding donors to the Annual Fund. Leadership gifts, those of $2,500 or more, typically account for close to 80% of the Annual Fund. Membership is available to any donor who gives $2,500 or more per year to the Annual Fund, or at tiered giving levels for younger alumni.
The Annual Fund
Washington and Lee is grateful for the expressions of concern for the campus community even as our alumni, parents and friends face disruptions and challenges in their lives. Many have asked how they can make a gift that will enable W&L to meet the immediate needs of students, faculty, staff, and the families of these groups.
Every gift or pledge payment to the Annual Fund through June 30 will meet one of the following:
- Unexpected and emergency living and travel expenses of students, some of whom who are unable to return to their homes;
- W&L's promise to ensure the employment of all employees through at least June 1;
- Costs associated with W&L's plan to complete the academic year through virtual instruction with quality and personal attention;
- Treating families fairly by refunding a pro-rated share of 2019-2020 room and board costs.
Thanks & RecognitionAs a donor, your support has a great impact on the W&L community.
The 1749 Circle is a special philanthropic society recognizing and honoring the loyal alumni, parents and friends who support the university consistently over time. This society is not about how much you give; it's about the simple act of giving year after year. Membership in the 1749 Circle begins after three consecutive years of giving to W&L.
The Honor Roll celebrates the many people who made gifts to W&L during the prior year as well as the volunteers who helped support the university, both on and off campus.
