Doing Good at Mason

Doing Good at Mason

You Empower Dreams

George Mason University is more than an economic engine for Northern Virginia and the national capital region. It’s also a change agent—and a life-changer. Philanthropic support from independent foundations helps Mason’s faculty address our era’s most pressing challenges, helps talented Mason artists inspire the region, and opens the door to lifelong learning—and career success—where it had long been closed.

The Corporate and Foundation Relations team helps to connect independent foundations and other institutional donors with university initiatives worthy of their support. 

Opportunities That Benefit You and Mason

• Connect to university offices that are shepherding some of the most exciting new initiatives.

• Advance the arts, beautify our campuses, and provide educations to first-generation students and others with demonstrated merit and/or need.
