Giving to Endowments

Today USD School of Law stands among the highest-rated law schools in the country as judged by two essential criteria—the quality of faculty scholarship and the credentials of enrolled students.

To ensure the law school's future growth and rise in stature, a major fund raising campaign was launched in 2004 to build the size of the school’s endowment. An endowment helps institutions build for the future. Over the years, endowment funds grow in value through sound investment and provide a major source of supplemental income. They also reduce dependence upon tuition income and make it possible to sustain long term commitments to faculty, students and academic programs.

There are a number of meaningful ways in which you can contribute to the endowment of the USD School of Law. You can make a contribution of any amount towards the school's general endowment fund or with a minimum gift of $50,000, you may create your own named endowment fund to support a specific program or purpose. Read more about donors who have established individually named endowment funds at the law school.
