Class Gift 2019

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 2019 support?

The Class of 2019 has elected to focus their efforts on the creation of an emergency fund for students in crisis. The Support Our Swans Fund will be available to any student who is experiencing an urgent need for financial support, and will be disbursed at the discretion of the Office for Student Affairs.

Examples of possible expenses covered by the SOS Fund:

  • Medications and other costs related to emergency medical care
  • Books and other essential academic expenses
  • Safety needs (i.e. changing a lock)
  • Replacement of essential personal belongings or temporary housing needs due to fire, theft, or natural disaster
  • Travel costs related to a death or illness in the immediate family

Our goal is to raise $15,000 to establish this fund. 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 2019, 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 2019 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 2019 Gift donor.
