Donations support all of the team’s activities, from travel to the summer debate seminars to the tournaments that we host.

Why Give?

Georgetown Debate is primarily self-funded, meaning that gifts from alumni and friends of the program are critical to its activities and growth. Your contributions can help to ensure the continuation of Georgetown’s legacy of excellence in policy debate.

We also hope to expand our partnership with D.C.’s Urban Debate League in order to facilitate access to the benefits of debate for students around the DMV area.
