The Big Give

BIG GIVE 2021 | April 7-8, 2021

2021 8th Annual Big Give 

Thank you for supporting the 2021 Big Give!

The Big Give is a 36-hour online campaign in support of USD School of Law. Last year, alumni, friends, and faculty generously supported the Big Give raising more than $341,000 in benefit of scholarships and academic programs. Gifts made during the 2020 Big Give Campaign critically sustained law students during the initial weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic. This year's 8th Law School Big Give campaign holds the promise of a brighter future for everyone at USD School of Law, kicking off with the Big Give Bash, hosted by RJS Law-A Tax Law Firm, on April 6, 2021, followed by two days of online fundraising beginning April 7th through April 8th, 2021.

There is so much that alumni, friends, faculty, and staff can do to support the students of USD School of Law. It is our hope that you will join together to make this giving day impactful for the future of current law students. Now more than ever, please take a moment to consider how you can help, by supporting student scholarships, Public Service Summer Law Student Fellowships, Legal Clinics Fellowships or by contributing to USD's efforts to increase diversity at the law school. You can be sure that your sincere act of generosity during this year's Big Give will make a real difference. 

Let's make the 8th annual Big Give a Big Success. Join your fellow alumni and friends and make a gift to USD School of Law!
