Friends and Alumni of the George Washington University Sport Philanthropy Executive Certificate program gathered to celebrate International Day of Sport for Development and Peace in Washington, DC. It was great to share initiatives being done in the Washington, DC area from the 8 professional sport teams, to Special Olympics International, Peace Players International, US Soccer Foundation, and so many more.   The George Washington University Sport Philanthropy Executive Certificate is the first educational program to help increase the efficiency and effectiveness of organizations and corporate sponsors leveraging the power of sport for social good.  For eight years, GW has worked with 200+ students to increase their personal and professional impact from after-school programs to the Super Bowl.  The program covers board governance, strategic planning, partnerships, grant writing and fund raising, measurement and evaluation, communications, and programming. Each student works on a capstone project related to their cause or initiative.
