Why Giving Matters
Georgetown Law’s innovative leadership in legal education depends greatly on the generosity of alumni, parents and friends. From annual gifts that make an immediate impact to endowed gifts that last for generations, contributions to Georgetown Law serve as a catalyst for positive change.
Every gift truly does matter.
Helps Georgetown Law enroll the most promising students
Gifts to Financial Aid ensure that a Georgetown Law education is accessible to the most qualified students through increased scholarship support.
Ensures the quality of a Georgetown education.
We have one of the largest full-time faculties in the world, and philanthropy enhances the caliber of faculty that Georgetown Law can recruit and retain.
Supports students in the classroom and beyond.
Our academic offerings strive, as always, to enhance the connections inherent in all fields of legal scholarship. But we need to support and enrich these strengths. Externships, summer work and post-graduate fellowships round out a competitive, 21st-century legal education that is recognized and valued around the world.
Inspires others to give, creating a multiplier effect.
Alumni giving is a vote of confidence in the Law Center. Additional alumni and other types of donors (such as corporations and foundations) want to know they’re investing in an institution that has the support of its community.
