Private support is a driving force that allows Stetson Law to move forward and excel as an institution. Individual gifts of all sizes enable us to recruit and retain the best and brightest law students, expand critical programs and functions, and transform new ideas into reality.

Making a gift will allow you to invest in the future of Stetson Law while also providing you and your family with significant financial planning opportunities. Certain gifts may provide you with tax benefits while providing Stetson Law with critical resources to fulfill and expand our educational mission.

Each gift brings with it a story that reflects the loyalty of our alumni and friends and the circumstances that inspire individuals to give. For examples, see our Donor Stories.
