Reunion Giving

We look forward to celebrating your GW Medical School and H Street Society Reunion Weekend and welcoming you back to Washington, D.C. this September 13-14!

Class Gifts
To honor your class reunion, we encourage your philanthropic support of the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences. The school's top priority is to support student scholarships and below you will find information specific to your class. All gifts made in 2019 will count toward your class giving goals.

During Reunion Weekend, awards will be given to the classes with the greatest dollars contributed, the highest class participation rate in class giving, and the most attendees at Reunion.
