Alumni Involvement

We rely on your generous contributions to enhance Center programs and services. We welcome your contribution in the form of time, energy, gifts in kind, and financial support. This places us in a special place of both privilege and responsibility, and we look to your thoughtful support to help us become a national model on how to do this work with discernment and respect to our deepest held values and beliefs.

  • For students, your generosity will mean continued support and expansion of the excellent programs being currently offered including travel assistance to LGBTQ conferences, need-based financial assistance, and growth in programming and presentations on campus.
  • For Georgetown, your generosity will mean development as a model in doing LGBTQ work in a faith context, drawing on its decades of understanding, commitment, and expertise on interfaith work.
  • For you, the donor, your generosity will make a difference in the lived experiences of LGBTQ Hoyas as we help make sure there are fewer roadblocks to their full and whole development.

Below are some of the programs made possible by our generous almuni.

Journeys: An LGBTQ Center Retreat

Journeys: Understanding Self & Building Community is an annual LGBTQ Resource Center Retreat made possible by the Tagliabue Initiative and the generous contributions of individual alumni donors. Each year, we take 24 students for an overnight experience hosted at the Calcagnini Contemplative Center in Bluemont, VA. The purpose of this retreat is to provide a space for members of the LGBTQ community and its allies at Georgetown to gather in order to share personal stories, to reflect on individual and community formation, and enter into thoughtful dialogue regarding the nature of the many communities that comprise the broader LGBTQA community at Georgetown. Click here to learn more about Journeys!

Gatherings: A Year Long Institute

Gatherings is a pilot year-long institute comprised of intensive workshops that offers LGBTQ students a sustained and in-depth opportunity to create spaces of encounter, engagement, and reflection that can lead to action and transformation. The institute consists of 4 workshops which are arranged sequentially to provide students with the space for cumulative learning. The inaugural cohort consists of 18 students who are drawn from a range of diversities, and have been community-builders on this campus. Click here to learn more about Gatherings!

Georgetown Summer Fellows

We are pleased to announce that the LGBTQ Resource Center, through a generous alum donor, will be sponsoring two students who will work an unpaid internship dedicated to serving the LGBTQ Community and advancing issues pertinent to the community as part of the Georgetown Summer Fellows Program in partnership with the Georgetown Scholarship Program and GUSA. Click here to learn more about the Georgetown Summer Fellows program.
