The Big Give

BIG GIVE 2020 | April 1-2, 2020

2020 7th Annual Big Give 

Thank you for supporting the 2020 Big Give!

While our annual Day of Giving only lasted 36-Hours, the Legacy of Caring that has grown out of this year's efforts will last a lifetime for students who are living through the greatest disruption in legal education in our lifetimes. Law students are especially grateful for your generous outpouring of support, throughout the past several weeks, but most especially during the 36-Hour Day of Giving--Legacy of Caring Campaign on April 1-2, 2020.

Your contributions are providing the resources necessary to sustain law school programs throughout this year and next. Equally important, your enthusiastic support also sends a strong message, lifting the spirits of students who are trying their best to study hard, stay focused and succeed despite recent challenges.

All of us at USD School of Law want to express our sincere appreciation to the 202 alumni, friends, faculty, and staff who contributed more than $341,000 during USD's Refocused Big Give 2020 efforts. Thank you for supporting Law Student Scholarships, Ferruolo Fellowships--Public Service, Law Student In Need Fund, Legal Clinics, Advocacy Programs, and Academic Initiatives.
