When you make an outright gift to SLU LAW, your contribution can be put to work immediately - either providing funding for current programs or creating a reliable source of future income by expanding the law school's endowment. An outright gift may be composed of almost any asset of value, such as:
Gifts of appreciated securities, stocks and bonds also provide considerable tax advantages when transferred to SLU LAW before they are sold. If you have held your securities for more than one year, you may find that your gift will provide a twofold tax benefit, creating an income-tax deduction as well as helping avoid the capital-gains tax that would have been due on their sale.
Tribute and memorial gifts are a wonderful way to honor a loved one on a special occasion or to memorialize a loved one as a celebration of life. Upon receipt of your tribute gift, a letter notifying the honored or the family of the deceased will be sent though the amount of the gift will not be disclosed. To make a tribute gift, please include:
- The name of the person being honored or memorialized.
- The contact information for the person to whom you would like notification sent.
- If you would like your gift to be made to a particular fund, please include the fund
name. Mail to:

Many corporations demonstrate their philanthropic intent by matching their employee's gifts to SLU LAW. Matching gifts are an easy way to double or even triple your donation to SLU LAW. To see if your company will match your gift, contact the appropriate department at your company or visit the University's corporate matching gift search page.
Such programs typically match all or a percentage of employee contributions to charitable organizations, making the employer a partner in employees' personal philanthropy. Simply obtain a matching-gift form from your employer's personnel office, fill it out, and provide it to SLU LAW with your contribution.
