aising high at gw ALUMNI NOTES There’s still time to give 110% to <strong>GW</strong>! In the next issue, which will mark our 10th anniversary, we’ll be introducing a new feature called Alumni Notes. As our alumni base grows, we want to stay in touch. The <strong>2019</strong> <strong>GW</strong> Legacy Challenge provides an immediate cash match for donors who document new or increased planned gift commitments to the George Washington University, such as gifts by will, trust, or IRA beneficiary designation. As a planned giving donor, you can direct matching funds to your area of interest (equal to 10% of the value of your planned gift, up to $10,000). The <strong>GW</strong> Legacy Challenge will end on either December 31 or when the unrestricted matching funds have been depleted, whichever comes first. Half of the matching funds have already been distributed, so act today to help our students tomorrow and beyond. Please submit any professional or personal milestones to: firstname.lastname@example.org Include your full name, graduation year and degree program. We can’t wait to hear from you! Include <strong>GW</strong> in your estate plan and the university will match a portion of your future gift today – to the department, program, or area of your choice! + = x Members of the Advisory Council CHAIR Mary-Michael Brown D.N.P., RN MedStar Health MEMBERS Diane Billings Ed.D., RN, FAAN Indiana University School of <strong>Nursing</strong> Alan Schurman Cohn J.D.
