The Annual Giving program was established to raise annual contributions for The University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law from graduates and friends. The Annual Giving program includes gifts to restricted funds and unrestricted gifts to the UM Carey Law Fund. Annual gifts support such areas as:
Members of the Maryland Law School Club are philanthropic leaders committed to sustaining the law school’s ability to educate future leaders and shape law and policy. Donors who give $1,000 or more during the fiscal year (July 1–June 30) become members of the Maryland Law School Club and we are proud to include more than 200 graduates and friends as members in the club.
The Graduates Of the Last Decade (GOLD) Club at UM Carey Law is committed to keeping our most recent graduates in touch with their alma mater and with fellow alumni. Through special events and outreach, this group of Maryland Law graduates learns about ways to remain active members of the law school community. The GOLD Club allows members to receive all the benefits of the Maryland Law School Club but with a smaller minimum gift. GOLD Club membership is tiered based on graduation date. Please refer to the list below for the giving levels.
Among the UM Carey Law’s most loyal donors, the Consecutive Giving Society recognizes alumni and friends who have supported the law school for five or more consecutive fiscal years (July 1 – June 30). Because of this unwavering generosity, UM Carey Law has been able to provide support for student scholarships, fellowships, and faculty development.
Gifts to the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law may be doubled or even tripled through matching gift programs made available by more than 1,000 corporations and law firms across the country. Your employer or your spouse’s employer may help you qualify for one of the giving clubs listed above. Amplify your gift to UM Carey Law by enclosing your employer’s matching gift form.
