Everyday Excellence Fund - Annual Giving
The School of Law is excited to introduce our new Everyday Excellence Fund. Your annual gifts are crucial to support the annual funding needs of the UND School of Law, helping us to sustain excellence each and every day. We have established new levels of giving to encourage your participation in building a stronger law school for North Dakota.
Dean’s Council Level: $24,999 to $500
Membership in the School of Law’s Dean’s Council reflects a strong commitment to helping us maintain a high-quality program of legal education at the University of North Dakota. At the Dean’s Council annual giving level, your gift has an immediate and substantial impact on the educational program we offer at the School of Law. Your unrestricted gift ensures that a worthy need won’t go unfunded; your commitment to make an annual gift in the same amount for three years allows us to count on your generosity in our planning.
21st Century Society: $24,999 to $10,000
Gifts at the level of the 21st Century Society help to move the School of Law from tradition to tomorrow, ensuring future generations of highly qualified UND-educated attorneys. These gifts can help to recruit a high-achieving student to the School of Law or fund student programs and activities, such as our annual internal moot court competition or annual North Dakota Law Review symposium; fund a faculty member’s research on topics such as renewable energy policy, international business transactions, domestic violence law, or international human rights; or markedly enhance the educational environment at the School of Law.
1899 Society: $9,999 to $5,000
Gifts at the level of the 1899 Society ensure the legacy of the School of Law’s strong tradition of providing a high quality legal education. These gifts can bring a nationally prominent speaker at the School of Law, contribute to the law library’s holdings, or purchase new instructional technology for our classrooms and courtrooms.
Partner: $4,999 to $1,000
Annual gifts at the Partner level can pay for a student team to travel to compete in a national trial or moot court competition, provide a Public Interest Law Summer Fellowship for a student who takes an unpaid public interest position, or purchase a laptop for student use.
Barrister: $999 to $500
Annual gifts at the Barrister level can pay for student registration fees in a national ABA student division meeting, support the School of Law’s presence at a regional job fair to recruit students, fund a faculty member’s presentation at a scholarly conference, or help to maintain our cutting-edge classroom technology.
Counselor Level: $499 to $100
Your gift contributes to our program of legal education. These contributions can help fund events sponsored by our student organizations, purchase resources for the Academic Success collection in our law library, host a Career Services program on interviewing skills, or assist us in meeting any number of needs. Your unrestricted gift allows us to put your contribution to good use where it’s needed most.
Associate Level: $99 to $1
Even a modest unrestricted annual gift of up to $99 helps to make a difference at the School of Law. Together, these annual gifts help to fund a range of programs and operations. Your contributions, in combination with your fellow donors, provide important support to our students, faculty, and staff.
