From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding was founded in 1993 at Georgetown University in Georgetown, Washington, D.C., United States. Following a $20 million dollar gift in 2005 from Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal to the school's Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding, the center was renamed the Prince Alwaleed Bin-Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding.[1] The gift was one of two to US Universities, with the other going to Harvard.

Republican congressman Frank Wolf questioned the prince's gift on February 14, 2008, and whether the center, given the money involved, had ever been critical of the Saudi government.[2]
