Types of Gifts

Thank you for considering a gift to Seton Hall Law!

Only with your help can Seton Hall Law achieve its strategic goals and take its rightful place among the top Law Schools in job placement and the Top 10 in Health Law programs.

In deciding where to direct your generosity, it may be helpful to familiarize yourself with these terms.

Annual Gifts
Gifts that alumni and friends make to Seton Hall Law each year — are the bedrock that allows the Law School to provide an extraordinary education and an enhanced student experience. Through these gifts, Seton Hall Law can extend the financial aid program, respond to unforeseen opportunities and increase its standing and scope through promising new initiatives. Annual gifts can be made to Seton Hall Law School through our unrestricted giving program, or any aspect of the Law School that resonates with a donor. The success of Annual Giving reflects our legacy, service and success, as each successive generation of alumni preserves the legacy it has inherited, augments it and then transfers it to today's students.

Endowed Gifts
While annual giving provides current support, gifts to an endowment (an investment fund) provide a long-term impact because the principal — the actual gift — is never spent. Only the investment earnings from the gift are used for funding purposes. Thanks to increasingly generous philanthropy and strategic, prudent investments, Seton Hall Law's endowment portfolio totals $ 39 million as of 2017. More about endowed gifts »

Restricted Gifts
Which part of Seton Hall Law reflects your personal values and priorities? Is it student scholarships, student organizations or something else? Restricted giving allows donors to designate where and how their generosity will have the greatest impact. So whether you care about Centers of Excellence, moot court, faculty research or facility infrastructure, making a restricted gift will support a priority that matters most to you. To learn more, please contact the Office of Alumni and Development at 973-642-8711.

Planned Gifts
Also known as estate gifts, these agreements provide for a contribution to Seton Hall from a donor's estate plans. Possibilities include naming the Law School in your will or as a beneficiary in your retirement plans, among many other options. More about Planned Gifts »
