Building a Lasting Legacy

Making an endowment gift to Suffolk University Law School is one of the best ways to make a permanent impact on the school and to help ensure the school’s ability to meet the educational needs of its students for generations to come.

Endowment gifts are carefully invested and some portion of the income they generate is drawn by the Suffolk University Law School to fund its needs in any given year. Income earned beyond what the University draws is reinvested. Because they can grow substantially over time from both additional gifts and compounding interest, endowed funds provide permanent sources of funding for the Law School.

Responding to Challenges, Embracing Opportunities

Endowment gifts may be unrestricted or designated for particular purposes according to the donor’s interests and the School’s needs and priorities. Endowment gifts may support priorities including:

  • Establishment of endowed scholarships
  • Establishment of endowed professorships
  • Construction, equipping, and maintenance of classrooms
  • Purchase of library material
  • Enhancement of classroom technologies
  • Creation of academic programs and research centers

Unrestricted endowment gifts are especially valuable because of the flexibility they offer, which enables the School not only to respond to unexpected challenges but to take advantage of exciting educational opportunities as they arise.

Naming Opportunities

Suffolk University Law School offers many opportunities for named endowment gifts. Gifts may be named in recognition of individual or corporate donors (such as law firms) or in honor of family members, classmates, friends, or professors.
