Graduation Giving



Honor Your Graduate

Honor your graduate by making a fully tax-deductible gift in his or her name to Houston College of Law. The law school will send your honoree a handsome card acknowledging your generosity and we will publish your name along with your student’s name in our upcoming Alumni Magazine. This is meaningful way to congratulate your graduate for the tremendous milestone achieved.

Graduation Giving

3L GiftThe 3L Class Gift is a student-led annual fundraising program that unites 3Ls in a common effort: to give back to the law school and leave a legacy for future generations of students. The program is designed to promote student leadership and encourage new alumni involvement following graduation.

Donations in any amount are encouraged. The main goal of the Class Gift Program is to gain the support of a large number of student donors. Through their contributions to the 3L Class Gift, our students can have a huge impact on the College's alumni giving rate.

The effort is led by the Class Gift Committee. To see the list of committee members, please click here.

The Class Gift Campaign will take place in the spring of each year. All 3Ls are invited to participate. Click here for more information.

You can honor a professor, an administrator, or anyone else who has had an impact on your legal education by making your gift in his or her honor. Certificates of appreciation will be sent directly to your honoree by the Office of Development and Alumni Relations, letting him or her know that a gift was made by you in his or her honor.

The Class Gift will be presented to Dean Guter by the SBA President at commencement in May. Donations for this year's gift will continue to be received, however, through August 31.
