The Class of 2014 Gift is a fundraising effort by which graduating students individually contribute throughout the academic year and collectively present at Convocation a contribution to New York University School of Law for the benefit of future students.
During our final year at NYU School of Law, just before we become alumni, we are honoring our time at the Law School by giving a gift in support of the students that will follow us. It may come as a surprise, but every single student's education has been subsidized by donations from alumni. Only about 75% of the annual budget is fulfilled by tuition - the rest comes from endowment funds and alumni gifts.
Participation is the Key
Students graduating with the Class of 2014 can give back to the Law School at a level he or she is comfortable with and still make a difference. The level of participation, rather than an amount of money raised by the Class of 2014, sends a strong signal to our alumni, our peers, and to the broader community.
Please join your classmates by making a gift at a level that is meaningful to you. Your gift can be earmarked to the NYU School of Law Fund for the Law School's most urgent needs, or to support other areas of your interest.
Your name will be included on the list of supporters presented at Convocation and inserted into the Convocation program. Your name and gift will also be acknowledged in the Law School's 2014 Annual Report of Donors, distributed to our entire alumni community.
