A friendly competition for alumni at Syracuse-area law firms to support to the College of Law.
Calling All Orange Lawyers!
The Law Firm Giving Challenge was created to help establish a tradition of philanthropy among alumni and to leave a legacy for future students.
Alumni giving helps ensure strength for our cutting-edge programs, institutes and centers, and facilities, as well as our scholarship and financial aid programs, ensuring that the next generation of Orange lawyers will have access to a first-class legal education. We are encouraging you to show your support for your alma mater—and engage in a friendly competition.
The Law Firm Giving Challenge returns for Fiscal Year 2022! All gifts made during the 2021 fiscal year (July 1, 2021 – June 30, 2022) count toward your firm’s participation rate.
