Washington and Lee University

Creating a Campus for the 21st Century


NOTE: All gifts after July 1, 2008 and gifts made prior thereto in specific support of these campaign priorities will count towards campaign totals.

Washington and Lee is blessed with one of the nation's most beautiful campuses-a place that evokes seemingly eternal images for generations of graduates. With maturity and the passage of years, alumni realize that these scenes are not in fact timeless, but rather are a gift from those who, over the last two centuries, created this magnificent campus. Inevitably, as the campus evolves, the details of the memories that future generations of students take with them will be different from those of past graduates. Nonetheless, by supporting the renewal of the campus, we ensure that the fundamental sense and spirit of these memories remains timeless, even as we provide for an unparalleled learning environment for today's students.

To care for its historic campus and shape it for 21st-century teaching and learning, Washington and Lee seeks to raise $120.5M through the Honor Our Past, Build Our Future campaign. Donors may support the renovation and restoration of the Colonnade; the expansion and modernization of Lewis Hall; the renovation of DuPont Hall; and the construction of new indoor athletic recreation and athletic facilities through gifts of any amount. Naming opportunities are available within facility with gifts of $50,000 or more.

  • Renovate and restore the Colonnade
  • Create a state-of-the-art facility for global learning in a renovated and enhanced duPont Hall
  • Construct the W&L Hillel House
  • Modernize and expand Lewis Hall
  • Build new indoor recreation and athletic facilities
NOTE: Amounts include projected maintenance endowment
TOTAL: $120,500,000

NOTE: Wilson Field is not listed as a campaign priority since funding was completed by the time of comprehensive counting. However, gifts made to Wilson Field counted towards final campaign totals because donors helped with a strategic plan priority.
