Below are important year-end deadlines and reminders to receive tax benefits for calendar year 2018 gifts.

To assist our alumni and friends with their year-end giving, University Development will be partially staffed Dec. 27-28 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Dec. 31 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. To ensure that your gift will be processed to meet IRS tax-year deadlines, please see the information below.

Make check payable to UNC School of Law, designating your gift in the memo line to the Law Annual Fund, or specify a law fund of your choice, and mail to: UNC School of Law, Office of Advancement, Campus Box 3382, Chapel Hill NC 27599-3382.

Any potential credit card gift received in the mail after Dec. 31 (even if postmarked by that date) cannot be treated as a 2018 gift.
