History of the Class Gift

In previous Class Gift Campaigns, the graduating classes gave to various areas of the college:

2002: Class Scholarship
2004: Fund for Law
2005: David Maleski Scholarship
2006: Patricia Morgan Scholarship
2007: Professional Education Complex
2008-2016: Class Gift Campaign Scholarship Fund

The Class Gift Campaign Scholarship Fund, an enduring legacy class gift program, was created by the Class of 2008. Class Gift Campaign funds now provide both immediate and ongoing financial support to students at the College of Law.

An annual scholarship is awarded to a deserving student from the subsequent year’s entering class, and a portion of the gift goes toward an endowment that grows over time to support additional scholarships.

The goal of the Class Gift Campaign is to reach 100 percent participation from the graduating class. A gift of any amount is included in the overall participation percentage and provides financial support to an incoming law student.
