As a state-assisted university, UMW receives less than 25 percent of its operating budget from the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Private gifts to the Fund for Mary Washington are essential to meeting the University’s most critical needs in a timely manner.
Your unrestricted gift to the Fund for Mary Washington:
- supports scholarships, career services, faculty programs, and alumni events
- provides funding for unexpected student needs
- enables University leaders to respond decisively to opportunities as they arise
- helps advance UMW as a premier public liberal arts and sciences institution
With a gift to the Fund of $2,500 or more, you will become a member of the President’s Council. (Graduates from the last 10 years may join the President’s Council with an annual gift of $500 or more, and graduates 11-15 years out may join with an annual gift of $1,250 or more.) Names of all President’s Council members are listed on a donor wall next to the Office of the President in George Washington Hall.
