Graduating ​Class Gift

The Graduating Class Gift program is a student-led campaign to raise money for University of San Diego School of Law. The Graduating Class Gift campaign is a fun and meaningful way for members of the graduating class to celebrate the milestone of earning their law degree, cement their bond as a class and help make USD School of Law a better place for current and future students by supporting a gift they feel will make a difference.

To pursue these goals, a committee of law students has volunteered to help rally support from their classmates. The class gift is meant to show gratitude for their legal education and to assist USD in remaining a competitive, top-tier law school. Above all, it represents the desire to give back and to support students following in their footsteps.

What is the 2023 Class Gift?

The Class of 2023 is raising money to establish the Class of 2023 Writs Snack & Coffee Bar. The snack bar would be located in a Warren Hall room and provide healthier snacks, coffee fixings, and varying beverages that would be accessible to USD law students. 

The Goal of this student run effort aims to establish a fund that will make a difference by providing healthy, functional snack options available for law students studying in the Writs. The Class of 2023 aspires to raise $5,000 from graduating law students and encourages participation from all members of the graduating class. A gift of $20.23 or $23 to honor your graduation year would make a significant impact.  

Every gift makes a difference.

When can I make my gift?

Right now! The official fundraising period for the class gift campaign kicked off in March and will continue through the end of the semester. All gifts made by June 30, 2023 will count toward the establishment of the Class of 2023 Writs Snack & Coffee Bar.
