What is the Graduating Class Gift Campaign?

The Class of 1991 initiated the Graduating Class Gift, choosing to commemorate their graduation by giving back to Georgetown Law. Since then, classes like yours have contributed over $400,000 to the Law Center.

What is my gift used for?

Your gift can be used in a variety of different ways; the decision is totally up to you. When you make your gift, you get to designate where the funds are directed. Give to a journal, club, or clinic that has played a meaningful role in your Georgetown experience or give to the Law Annual Fund which helps support student aid.

Why should I give to the Graduating Class Gift?

The Graduating Class Gift program allows each class to give back to the Law Center, ensuring that future students have the same opportunities you had. Only 70% of the cost of a Georgetown legal education is covered by tuition, and that difference is made up by alums and friends of the university. By giving back, you acknowledge their philanthropy and pave the way for future students.

I have student loans to pay and can’t make a large donation. Will my gift really make a difference?

Absolutely. Participation at any level helps. The fact that you choose to give is more important than the amount you give. A high class participation rate shows firms, foundations, and prospective students that recent Georgetown graduates are committed to the mission and continued success of the Law Center.
