Year-End Giving

Dear Alumni and Friends,

Thank you for keeping South Texas College of Law Houston in mind this holiday season. We appreciate your generosity, which helps us keep our tuition low and our value high! Your gifts provide essential support for scholarships, faculty, departments and programs, and the law school’s areas of greatest need.

To obtain a tax receipt for 2016, all gifts must be received or post marked by December 31, 2016.

 While campus will be closed for winter break from December 23, 2016 to January 2, 2017, our Advancement team is on call and available to assist with any end-of-year giving questions:

Mindy Guthrie:             (713) 443-3974 or mguthrie@stcl.edu

Susan Diederich:          (713) 419-9293 or sdiederich@stcl.edu

 During winter break from December 23 to January 2, we recommend the following ways to give:

Online via Credit Card – The most convenient and expedient way to ensure your year-end gift to STCL Houston is received by the December 31, 2016 tax year deadline is to make it through our secure online giving page: www.stcl.edu/give

Mail a Check – If you are sending your contribution through the U.S. Postal Service, the envelope must be postmarked no later than December 31, 2016. Please make your check out to “South Texas College of Law Houston,” note your gift designation on the check memo line or in an accompanying note, and mail your gift to the following address:

Attn: Office of Advancement
South Texas College of Law Houston
1303 San Jacinto Street
Houston, TX 77002-7006

Gift of Securities – Donated stocks provide tax deductions for the market value of the securities, computed on the day of transfer, while avoiding payment of capital gains on the appreciated value of the stock. The date of your stock gift will be the date the securities are officially received in STCL Houston’s account.

If the securities are held by your bank or broker, it is usually best to transfer them electronically via the Depository Trust Co. (DTC) system.

Please contact Mindy Guthrie at 713-443-3974 to let us know the name and number of shares you are donating, the date, the purpose/gift designation, and advise your broker to contact our broker:
