Big GiveBig Give

SAN DIEGO (February 27, 2019) – University of San Diego (USD) School of Law’s sixth annual Big Give–a 36-hour online fundraising campaign will be underway on April 3-4—the event kicks off on Tuesday, April 2, at the Big Give Bash taking place at the offices of RJS Law. The Bash is hosted by Board of Visitors and adjunct faculty member Ronson J. Shamoun, ’98 (BAA), ’02 (JD), ’03 (LLM), and fellow Board of Visitors member John Gomez, ’89 (BBA) of Gomez Trial Attorneys. 

The Big Give Campaign and the BASH contribute to a lively celebration with an important mission.  Funds raised from the Big Give strengthen academic programs, support students, and fund key initiatives at USD School of Law.

Launched in 2014, the Big Give has raised more than $1M with more than $757,000 supporting student scholarships. In 2018, alumni and friends—in excess of 230+—donated over $303,000 during the Big Give. The buzz around this year’s Big Give has already generated outstanding partnerships and $100,000 in matching gifts, including those made by Casey Gerry–David Casey, ’74 (JD); Dale Giali, ’90 (JD) and Susan Westover-Giali, ’90 (JD); Gomez Trial Attorneys–John Gomez, ’89 (BBA); Jackson Lewis; Sunita and Patrick Martin, ’92 (JD); C. Edward Miller, ’69 (JD); Laura and Kurt Robinson, ’84 (BA), ’87 (JD); and RJS Law—A Tax Law Firm–Ronson J. Shamoun, ’98 (BAA), ’02 (JD), ’03 (LLM). The 2019 Big Give is championed by Class Agents, Law Firm Challenge Captains, and Regional Leaders, and it is also part of USD’s Employee Giving Campaign as well as the 2019 Graduating Class Gift drive.
