SON Giving Opportunities

Making History: The Campaign for GW is a comprehensive, university-wide philanthropic effort to raise funds to support the George Washington University’s vision and priorities. The seven-year, $1 billion Campaign—which officially began in July 2011 and was publicly launched in June 2014—has three key pillars: support students, enhance academics, and break new ground through state-of-the-art facilities and research.

The School of Nursing supports the Campaign by raising needed funds for student support, faculty research and professorships, equipment, and international programs. Here are a few specific ways you can be part of this historic campaign and advance the school’s mission and vision.

International Programs

Funds support student trips that provide hands-on training for students and health services and education to regions in need. SON offers several interdisciplinary trips to Haiti, and more are planned for other locations in the coming year. Students may also propose international opportunities that would count toward their clinical hours.

Simulation Lab

Funds support this high-tech environment in which students can “treat” manikins, which can be programmed to simulate health events ranging from blood pressure fluctuations to complications during childbirth. This hands-on environment is essential in preparing nurses for successful careers in their chosen fields.
