Last fall, five student-led projects took part in Colonial Crowdfunding, a program harnessing the power of the GW network to support student ventures. These student organizations try to raise anywhere from $2,000 to $5,000, and market these opportunities through their networks.
GW Veterans not only reached its funding goal for improvements to the Military Resource and Community Center, but increased it by $1,500 and beat that goal, too!
Donations are still being accepted for these initiatives, and gifts of all size matter!
GW Robotics Team
Donations to the team will facilitate the purchase of equipment and supplies necessary to build a robot that is capable of navigating rooms, extinguishing flames, maneuvering around obstacles, and rescuing a doll, representative of a baby.
GDUB Diving Club
With your support, members of the GDUB Diving Club—comprised of dedicated scuba divers, free divers, ocean activists, and conservation champions—will be able to contribute to the restoration of our reefs and oceans.
Help us make much-needed enhancements to the common space in the Military Resource and Community Center, which serves as a space to promote community engagement and offers military-affiliated students a network of support on campus.
Funds raised will allow us to conduct focus groups and surveys, as well as improve the quality of assessment tools at our disposal. The money raised will also support travel to and from the district-level competition, and competition registration costs for each member.
Engineers without Borders
We are fundraising to support our work to improve water quality and quantity in La Pña, El Salvador. Engineers Without Borders has been working on this project for six years and this spring a group of student engineers will return to La Peña.
