Thanks and Recognition

As a donor, your support has a great impact on the W&L community. The impact of your gifts is not simply the tangible resources you provide to help carry out W&L's mission. Your support offers inspiration to the campus community in so many areas.

Thank you for your generosity. You have honored Washington and Lee with your gifts, and it honors you in return.

Campaign Success

Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia, concluded its seven-year campaign on June 30, raising $542.5 million, 8 percent more than the $500 million goal. "Honor Our Past, Build Our Future: The Campaign for Washington and Lee" is believed to be the second-largest by a liberal arts college. It was launched during one of the country’s worst economic periods but successfully followed its original timeline and campaign plan.
