Can my gift be matched?

What counts as a gift?
Any gift or pledge payment to Berkeley Law made during the current fiscal year (July 1, 2019-June 30, 2020) will count towards participation in Partners in Leadership. This includes, but is not limited to:
- a payment on a current pledge IF the pledge was made during the current fiscal year
- a class reunion gift – if you graduated in a year ending in 4 or 9 and make your reunion year gift by June 30, 2020, it will count both towards Partners in Leadership and your class campaign totals
- a gift to a restricted law school fund or scholarship
- a company matching gift
How much should I give?
We encourage you to give an amount that is reasonable for your means. During the 2018-2019 Partners in Leadership campaign, law firm partners and general counsels gave, on average, in the range of $3,000-$4,000 with some giving much more. Associates and more recent graduates gave an average of $150 with some gifts being $500 or more.
