Successful End to University’s Capital Campaign

Georgetown University’s For Generations to Come 10-year capital campaign ended June 30, 2016 and successfully raised more than $1.5 billion for the University. The Walsh School of Foreign Service met its target by a very wide margin, raising almost $175 million for the creation of new academic and research programs, support for scholarships and faculty chairs, and funding for travel and internship opportunities for our students. It is only thanks to the incredible generosity of the SFS community that the school could make such an important contribution to the success of the campaign.

Dean Joel Hellman said, “We’re proud that SFS was able to make such a strong contribution to the University’s capital campaign. It’s wonderful to see the SFS community energized to propel the school and help it to adapt to a changing world. We look forward to building on this success as we shape the priorities for the second century of SFS.”

The Walsh School of Foreign Service will celebrate its Centennial in 2019, offering a chance to think about both the past and future of SFS.

“As our Centennial approaches, we have the opportunity to celebrate the past 100 years of the School and to reflect on the remarkable impact that SFS has made on the world. Our goal for the next 100 years is to ensure that SFS remains the very best place for students to study international affairs and to engage in the world inspired by our commitment as ‘women and men for others.’ Your contributions — big and small — are absolutely critical to meet that goal,” Hellman said.
