THE W. P. CAREY FOUNDATION’S magnificent $30 million gift was intended by the law school’s late benefactor, Wm. Polk Carey, to sustain our world class academic programs and superlative faculty. But with this gift came a challenge: Accelerate UM Carey Law’s forward momentum by inviting others to invest in its future. The Carey gift is enabling the law school to strengthen its programs. It is providing support for faculty. And it is bolstering the law school’s endowment.
It was Bill Carey’s vision, through this gift, to inspire alumni and friends to make their own gift commitments to support the law school’s pressing priorities—and his challenge to all lives on. “Doing good while doing well” was his motto, and our law school can accomplish great things if we rise to Bill’s challenge.
We hope that you will choose to support the Carey Challenge with an investment in UM Carey Law. We invite you to consider making a gift toward scholarships for incoming or current students; stipends for students taking public interest summer jobs; or loan repayment funding for graduating law students, judicial law clerks, and practicing alumni choosing to work in public interest law.
Please join with alumni and friends and participate in the Carey Challenge, as we endeavor to secure $15M in new gift commitments over the next three years. Together, we can prepare a generation of extraordinary lawyers and leaders who will shape the future.
An investment in UM Carey Law is an investment in the next generation of leaders… with a handsome return.
