Law Firm Giving

2015-2016 Law Firm Giving Challenge

Challenge Overview

The Law Firm Giving Challenge is a competition that encourages law firms with multiple UF Law graduates to achieve 100% participation in the Annual Fund. The Annual Fund provides for quality, affordable legal education by covering expenses not met with state funds, tuition or endowment income. The Fund supports such things as: student research assistantships, student organizations, faculty research and scholarships, career development for students and alumni, outreach programs, alumni activities, and much more.

Challenge Participants

Firms with 2 or more University of Florida law graduates are eligible to participate. Firms are divided into two groups for the challenge:

  • Group 1: Firms with 2-10 Gators
  • Group 2: Firms with 11+ Gators

Why Participate?

Law firm partners and associates, government lawyers, and corporate practitioners who all have one thing in common – being a Gator – are working to achieve 100 percent participation among Gators in their offices as part of the 2015-2016 Annual Fund campaign.

The program is designed to broaden the base of alumni support and to educate alumni about the role of private support at publicly funded law schools. It provides essential support for students, faculty and programs through the Annual Fund, while increasing alumni participation, a common measure of alumni support among law schools.

Participation is what really matters in the Law Firm Giving Challenge. Every dollar contributed makes a difference to UF Law students, faculty and alumni. Here are some examples of how your gift could benefit UF Law:

  • Support high-quality and affordable legal education, a proud Gator tradition
  • Provide scholarship and loan assistance
  • Support student organizations
  • Strengthen the law library
  • Support services and programs for students and alumni

Challenges Rules and Dates

The goal of the challenge is to achieve 100% participation at law firms with at least 2 UF Law alumni. All gifts donated to the UF Law Annual Fund between July 1, 2015 and June 30, 2016 will be counted in the challenge results.
