Current Use

Gifts that are immediately available enable the law school to meet the current needs of the school, including:

  • increased scholarships to promote diversity and strengthen our student body
  • enhanced interdisciplinary programs and initiatives
  • support for teaching and scholarship of our world-class faculty

There are a number of meaningful ways in which you can contribute current-use funding to USD School of Law. You can make a contribution of any amount towards the Dean's Scholarship Initiative or one of the many academic programs and initiatives within the law school, such as the legal clinics, Graduate Jobs Initiative, or centers or institutes. Read about areas to support within the law school.

Many donors choose to support USD School of Law with a blended gift, contributing a combination of both current-use and endowed funding. A Legacy Endowed Scholarship enables donors to have a direct impact through a current-use scholarship, while at the same time providing endowed funds that support the law school and secure the legacy of the gift forever (minimum pledge of $75,000 over five years).
