Class of 2018 Gift Campaign
What is the Class of 2018 Gift Campaign?
The Class of 2018 Gift Campaign is a student-led initiative supporting the Law School Annual Fund. Members of the Class of 2018 join together to make a Class Gift, a collective class contribution to the Law School. The Class Gift focuses on participation, not dollars raised. It is the act of giving that is important – gifts of any size make a big difference.
What is the Class Gift supporting?
You can choose from the following funds when you donate:
- Law School Annual Fund
The Dean uses this fully-expendable fund each fiscal year to support top priorities and critical needs, including scholarships, clinical programs, faculty research, and student services and activities.
- Mandel Legal Aid Clinic
These funds support clinic work throughout the Law School.
- Alumni Faculty Fund
These funds support faculty research and retention, ensuring learning under the top professors.
- Alumni Scholarship Fund
These funds support student scholarships and financial aid.
What is our goal?
This year, the Class Gift Committee has challenged this year's class to reach 70% participation in the class gift campaign. If the class reaches 70% participation, the Wolf Family will donate an additional $40,000 to the Law School Annual Fund.
How much should I give?
Because we focus on participation, the act of giving is what's important. In honor of our class, we suggest of gift of $20.18, but a donation of any size will make a big impact.
Isn't my tuition enough?
Tuition covers the day-to-day expenses for only half a school year. When tuition runs out, that's when philanthropic support kicks in. Tuition also doesn't allow for any growth.
How do I become involved?
Come to the Class of 2018 events! And most importantly, make your gift! You can give online right now at: http://give.uchicago.edu/law
