While celebrating his 28th birthday on Thursday, Boston Celtics forward Jeff Green announced he'll make a $1 million donation to the Georgetown athletic department for the John R. Thompson Jr. Intercollegiate Athletics Center.
"I'm very fortunate to be in a position to give back to the University and to the program that has done so much for me," Green said in a release from the school. "The environment created by Coach [John] Thompson III and his staff helped shape me both academically and athletically. Georgetown and Georgetown basketball is at my core and is part of who I am."
Said Thompson III: "This generous gift from Jeff will help to enhance the experience of many future Georgetown student-athletes. Jeff's commitment to our school and to our program speaks not only to his experiences as a student and an athlete here, but gives a small glimpse into who he is as a person. We're very fortunate to have Jeff Green represent this institution."
