As we wrap up our first year of fundraising, the SaxaFund team couldn’t be prouder of all that our projects have accomplished. Since we launched SaxaFund in January 2018, seven teams of students passionate about making our campus community a better place have raised over $8,000 for their projects, and they’re just getting started. From starting a stipend for studentswho cannot afford off-campus therapy to original investigative journalism into the lives and legacies of the 272 slaves sold to keep Georgetown afloat in the 1800’s, our collaborators have already accomplished so much and we can’t wait to see where they go next! Thank you to everyone who donated to these projects and believed in us through our first year of fundraising. We’re so excited to see what 2019 brings!

IDEAS THAT ANIMATE GEORGETOWN
SaxaFund is a fundraising platform for student initiatives on the Hilltop. We connect creative student initiatives with alumni and community support in a clear and transparent fashion.
SaxaFund is a collaborative project launched in 2017 by The Corp, GUASFCU, and GUSA . Together, we're reimagining how student initiatives are funded. As members of student-run organizations, we know firsthand how tough it is for students to find financial support for their ideas. With deeply-rooted legacies of service to the Georgetown community, we also know that many Georgetown alumni and community members have a unique desire to support students who are working towards improving the Hilltop. SaxaFund connects the two, bringing together different visions to animate the Georgetown community.
