Types of Gifts:

The Law School Annual Fund

Gifts to the Law School Annual Fund are unrestricted, providing flexibility to meet the Law School’s most pressing needs. While Annual Fund gifts are usually committed to critical areas such as student scholarships, support of student activities, and faculty and staff support, they also provide the Dean with the ability to undertake new initiatives and to meet unanticipated needs throughout the year.

Restricted Expendable Gifts

As an alternative to Annual Fund giving, you may choose to make a restricted expendable gift that is given for a specific purpose. Examples include funding for summer stipends, technology and facilities upgrades, and advocacy competitions.

Endowed Gifts

Restricted endowed gifts establish a fund for a specific purpose, while unrestricted endowments provide the flexibility to meet the Law School’s changing needs. The interest from the endowment is available each year to be spent for the purpose for which the gift was made. Scholarships, professorships, and chairs are often funded by endowed gifts.
