How to Give

Giving Online

To make a gift to the Law School, please use our online giving form which gives you the option to pay by credit card or by check.

As contributing alumni and friends, you make the difference. The Annual Fund is the heart of New York Law School’s support and is the primary way that we can ensure that the Law School is one of the country’s most prestigious centers for learning and research. Your generosity helps to sustain, expand, and enhance:

  • Scholarships that help deserving students pursue their legal education.
  • Prestigious faculty, and faculty writing and research.
  • Moot Court and Law Review.
  • Centers and programs that provide unique learning and practice experience for our students, and whose work is influential throughout the legal and wider community.
  • The Law School Library, recognized as among the finest in the country.

Giving Opportunities

The many ways to contribute to New York Law School include cash donations, stocks, and appreciated securities. All gifts are tax deductible.

New York Law School recognizes the leadership and vision of those who make substantial financial contributions to the Annual Fund through Giving Clubs and the 21st Century Society which is composed of donors who make a gift through wills, trusts or annuities.

Gifts of Stock/Annuities

If you would like to make a gift of stock, please complete the Stock Transfer Form and submit to your investment advisor. Please inform us of the company name and number of shares being donated for acknowledgement and tracking purposes. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact Tara Tomlinson, Assistant Vice President, Development at 212.431.2800, email tara.tomlinson@nyls.edu.
