How I can give online?
Can my gift be matched?
Your firm or company might make matching gifts. The Development and Alumni Relations team is happy to help with any necessary paperwork.
What counts as a gift?
Any gift or pledge payment to Berkeley Law made during the current fiscal year (July 1, 2017-June 30, 2018) 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 3 or 8 and make your reunion year gift by June 30, 2017, 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 2016-2017 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.
