Honoring Our Past … Strengthening Our Future


TWC Launches $5 Million Campaign

In honor of our 40th anniversary, The Washington Center is embarking on a two-year campaign to strengthen and sustain our unique experiential learning programs and expand TWC’s impact in preparing college students to become globally competent, civically engaged leaders.


40 & Forward evolved through a comprehensive strategic planning effort that included the board, corporate and foundation partners, and member colleges and universities.


The campaign seeks to:

  • Raise a record $3 million for scholarships, with a focus on providing opportunities to traditionally underserved and first-generation college students;
  • Double the number of alumni actively engaged in TWC’s future – as supervisors for interns, experts on professional track panels, serving as mentors and donors; and
  • Raise $2 million to enrich and expand TWC’s professional track programming, customized seminars and internships, and expand TWC’s positive impact around the world.

Ways to Support 40 & Forward

Four key initiatives offer corporate and foundation partners, friends, and alumni the opportunity to contribute to an area of focus most aligned with their strategic and philanthropic goals.
