Make an Impact

Each year, gifts to the School of Law Carolina Fund provide crucial and immediate benefit to the school by funding scholarships, experiential learning opportunities, faculty research, and other strategic initiatives. Collectively, your gifts — of any amount — are substantial. No student at the School of Law graduates without having been touched, in some way, by your gifts.

School of Law Carolina Fund Dean's Circle

Annual gifts of $1,000 or more to the School of Law Carolina Fund qualify individuals to be members of the Dean's Circle — the premiere leadership giving society at the School of Law. Members of the society receive special recognition and unique benefits.

Matching Gifts

Increase your gift's impact through a Matching Gift. Many employers have matching gift programs that could significantly increase your gift to the School of Law. Find out if your (or your spouse’s) company or organization has a matching gift policy.

Endowments

An endowment is an investment in the future of the School of Law. It is a designated fund that may or may not have a stated purpose at your request. The fund may be created through the donation of cash, marketable securities or other liquid assets. Endowed funds are typically intended to be held in perpetuity (forever), with the investment earning from those funds made available (at least in part) to spend in support of the purpose of the endowment.

What does it cost to create an endowment?

An endowment requires a minimum gift of $25,000. Named endowments or scholarships may establish a scholarship fund designated for a specific academic discipline or program with restrictions or preferences or academic and research programs, etc. Endowments may be funded over a time frame.

Volunteering

Not all gifts can be measured in dollars. Get involved in the University of South Carolina School of Law family. There are many opportunities for involvement.
