In recognition of the significant ways in which students have personally benefited from Carolina Law alumni philanthropy, the Class of 2014 elected to support the Law Annual Fund as this year’s 3L Class Gift. Gifts to the Law Annual Fund help sustain the features that set Carolina Law apart. Past gifts to Carolina Law have provided the School with the resources necessary to provide scholarship assistance to maintain a competitive and accessible Carolina Law education; travel funds that allow award-winning trial teams to compete nationally; and stipends in the form of summer public interest grants, which permit students to gain invaluable career training while in service of the public good.
The 3L Class Gift Campaign kicked off Feb. 21 at Fitzgerald’s Irish Pub on Franklin St. Classmates and guests enjoyed an evening of food, drink, fellowship and philanthropy. Class gift officers, Andrew Gibbs (3L Class President), Donald Huggins (3L Class Representative), Mary Scott Kennedy (3L Class Representative) and J.M. Durnovich (SBA President), educated classmates on the importance of supporting the Law Annual Fund and encouraged their peers to join in on the campaign effort. Over the course of the evening, members of the Class of 2014 pledged over $3,100 in support of the Law Annual Fund.
The Class of 2014 has chosen to uphold a proud tradition of alumni giving that will help ensure that future students receive the same, if not even greater, benefits that they have enjoyed. Thanks to the leadership and diligence of the 3L Class Gift officers, over 50 3Ls have now participated in the campaign, bringing campaign totals to $5,884 in gifts and pledges to date. Campaign efforts will continue with a final push in coming weeks. The Class will announce their final campaign totals at graduation.
