Georgetown University Business School receives $20M gift
Washington Business Journal - by Tucker Echols Staff Reporter

Georgetown University has received a $20 million gift to name the new building for its McDonough School of Business in memory of the late Rafik B. Hariri, two-time prime minister of Lebanon.

The gift was made by Hariri’s son, Saad Hariri, the newly designated prime minister of Lebanon and a 1992 alumnus of the McDonough School of Business.

The funds will help cover the final costs of constructing the new building, which will begin holding classes for all business school students in September, and create two endowed scholarships, one each for an undergraduate and a graduate student.

The gift comes on the heels of a donation last December of $75 million, the largest philanthropic gift ever a received by the University, to create a professorship fund.
