Frequently Asked Questions

Your participation in the KU Law 2012 Class Gift Program demonstrates the strength of support of the graduating class for law school. You have the chance now by giving to make sure the opportunities that you had as a student are possible for future classes. A high level of giving by the graduating class shows satisfaction with and financial support for the University of Kansas School of Law, which reflects well on the reputation of where you attended law school.

Alumni donations also boost the value of your law degree. By making a difference for future classes with your annual support, you can ensure that KU Law continues to be somewhere you are proud to have attended. Donations to KU Law help attract and retain top faculty, provide support for research, and allow prospective students to attend with support through scholarships. Donations to the law school also demonstrate support by alumni, which is important in the law school's rank compared to other schools. Your gift may also be matched by firms and corporations, which enhances the value of your gift.

Donations of any amount are welcome. Christopher "Kit" Smith, L'72 has generously offered to donate $10 for every student who donates or pledges to support KU Law. Larger donations are encouraged, but if an alumnus is willing to make a donation for every one of us who will support KU Law, the least we can do is match that now. We hope you consider this an annual tradition, so when you have more resources in the future, you can give more then. Also, pledges count, but pledging an amount that you can actually pay or donating now are what matter.

If you are interested in helping with the KU Law 2012 Class Gift or would like to make an offer to match the pledges, please contact James Carter at KULaw2012ClassGift@gmail.com.
