The CUNY School of Law Foundation accepts gifts of all sizes and kinds. To that end, we offer several donation methods that make it easy to give:
Online giving is simple and only takes a few minutes. For your convenience, we accept MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover on our secure site. An automatic confirmation of your gift will be sent to the e-mail address you provide on the gift form, and an acknowledgment letter for tax purposes will follow in the mail.
There is a 3.3% service charge for completing a transaction online. This is a credit card processing fee and CUNY Law does not profit from this. If you would like to add this fee to your donated amount, 100% of your intended gift will go to CUNY Law.
Donations by Mail
If you prefer to mail your donation, you can download and print a donation form to include with your check. Please send your check, made out to "CUNY School of Law Foundation," to:
Office of Institutional Advancement
2 Court Square
Long Island City, NY 11101-4356
Please be sure to include your name and contact information in your mailing so that your gift may be credited correctly and acknowledged. Personal information maintained in the Foundation's records is only used for CUNY Law-related business.
Securities and Bequests
A gift of appreciated securities will not only benefit the Law School, but may result in significant tax benefits to you as well. You may also choose to make a gift to CUNY Law School through your will or living trust. If so, you will become a member of our Legacy Society, a group of extraordinary graduates and friends who have made the Law School a beneficiary of their estates. Should you decide to remember CUNY Law School this way, please let us know, so that we may recognize your generosity. To discuss these or other planned giving opportunities, please contact Glenn Kaufhold at 718-340-4530.
Many corporations have matching gift programs that will match employee gifts. Ask your human resources department about programs your company may offer for matching your charitable donations.
CUNY Law is pleased to use your gift in the way that you designate. A gift may be restricted by designating it to a specific Law School program. If no designation is indicated, your gift will be treated as unrestricted and added to the Foundation Annual Fund , allowing us to use your gift where it is most needed. Regardless of how you designate your gift, every donation is genuinely appreciated. And every gift will make a difference. Thank you for your support!
