Class Gift

What is a Class Gift?

The Graduating Class Gift program is a student-led campaign to raise money for Vermont Law School. The class gift campaign is a fun and meaningful way for members of the graduating class to celebrate the milestone of earning their JD, LLM, or Master’s, cement their bond as a class and help make VLS a better place for current and future students by supporting a gift they feel will make a positive difference.

What will the Class of 2018 support?

The Class of 2018 has elected to focus their efforts on upgrades to the Chase Center which include:

  • New paint
  • Replacement of chairs
  • New lighting
  • Large, flat-screened television

The total cost of these upgrades is $30,000. We think we can raise this money, if our classmates, parents, faculty, and staff stand with us and support our class gift.

If you are a member of the Class of 2018, Consider this:

There are tons of reasons to give! Here are just a few of our favorites:

  1. To honor what we love about VLS. Now is our chance to pay tribute to the school that changed our lives forever.
  2. To commemorate our time as a VLS student.
  3. To lead the way for future swans. We can help ensure that future students can create their own unique experiences.

How do I take part in the Class of 2018 Gift?

It’s easy—all you have to do is make a gift either on the vlsConnect webpage or submit a check by mail. If you give before graduation, you will be recognized as a Class of 2018 Gift donor.
