Givepulse is the Nashman Center's platform for finding and reporting community engagement activities.  The Nashman Center’s ability to share “who is doing what, where, and with whom” helps us all work more collaboratively, ultimately improving our effectiveness with the community.

All GW students and faculty have a Givepulse account, accessible by using their GW email account with the same sign-on information. We encourage you to use this platform to connect with local organizations and members of the GW community who share your social issue interests.
