Ways to Give

 

There are several ways to give to the FAMU College of Law. Alumni and friends can help support the law school's most critical needs by donating to the Annual Fund. Because contributions are renewed annually, gifts made to the Annual Fund provide the dean with a dependable stream of unrestricted funds to support key law school programs, activities and services.  Another method of giving to the law school is through the establishment of an endowment fund.  Endowments allow donors to support the FAMU College of Law in perpetuity as funds are invested to provide a steady flow of income for a specific need.

ANNUAL FUND

Gifts made to the FAMU College of Law's Annual Fund help to support a variety of programs and activities that recognize outstanding student achievements, bring renowned guest speakers to campus, encourage faculty development, honor distinguished alumni and friends, and advance the image of the FAMU College of Law.  A strong Annual Fund provides the dean with the flexibility needed to respond to urgent needs and increased demands of a first-rate institution of legal education. One aspect of the Annual Fund, Book Awards, recognizes the most outstanding student in each law school course with a scholarship award.  The Annual Fund draws its strength from alumni, friends, law firms, and corporations committed to renewing their gifts each year. The FAMU College of Law welcomes gifts of all sizes, including those that are eligible for corporate matching funds. All gifts are tax deductible.
