The 2024 Letterwinners Challenge will be February 7–14

About the Letterwinners Challenge

The Georgetown Athletics Letterwinners Challenge is a weeklong fundraising initiative in which the alumni community from each Georgetown sport comes together to support our student-athletes and has a chance to win additional dollars in three categories:

  1. Most Donors
  2. Most Dollars Raised
  3. Highest Alumni Participation Percentage

The team that wins each category earns $15,000 toward its annual fundraising goal. These annual fundraising dollars make an immediate impact on Georgetown’s athletic programs and provide crucial operating support for things like travel, equipment, uniforms, and other essential team needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a “Letterwinner?”

    Georgetown Athletics defines a “Letterwinner” as anyone who has been a member of a varsity sports team at Georgetown for at least one season.

  • How can I participate?

    Visit this website and make a gift of any size to help your team win the challenge. The website will track gifts minute by minute, and you will be able to see how your team is doing in real time. You can put your team on top by making your gift today and encouraging your teammates to make their gifts too!

  • I made my gift. Is there anything else I can do to get involved?

    Yes! Encourage your fellow teammates to make their annual fund gift during the challenge. You can reach out by phone, text, or email. You can also use the social toolkit on this website to download graphics and let all of your friends and followers know that you made a gift to support your sport—and they should too!

  • I played multiple sports at Georgetown. Can I make gifts to more than one team?

    Yes, but our check-out process requires you to check out for each different gift separately.

  • I am not a former student-athlete. Will my gift count?

    Georgetown alumni, fans, and friends are all welcome to make gifts as part of the challenge. However, these gifts will only count toward the “Most Dollars Raised” category because the other two categories specifically measure alumni student-athlete giving.

  • Will my gift(s) be tax-deductible?

    Yes, all gifts made as part of the Letterwinners Challenge are tax-deductible, and you will receive a tax receipt by mail after making your gift.

  • Who do I talk to if I have questions about my gift?

    If you have questions, you can contact The Annual Fund for Georgetown Athletics at or (202) 784-6223 about making a challenge gift or about your giving history.

    Yes, you can send a gift by mail to:

    Georgetown University Gift Processing
