Scholarships help assure that the educational and professional opportunities that launched more than 7,000 lives in the law will be available to qualified students in years to come. It has become increasingly important for Arizona Law to raise funds to offset the rising costs of legal education to help us attract and educate the talented, engaged students who will be well-prepared to accept the mantle of professional and community leadership.




Private gifts are increasingly important, as the costs of professional education have risen dramatically even as public sector support has declined. More than ever, we rely on your help to fulfill our promise to students and the legal profession. I hope you will take every possible chance to tell others about the many ways that scholarship gifts can be made, and the enduring reward of helping students launch their lives in the law.

Create an Endowment

Endowment funds provide a constant source of income over time, with which Arizona Law can assist students through scholarships. Unlike other gifts, which are expended for short-term needs, gifts for an endowment are invested and the principal is held in perpetuity. Scholarship endowments can be named after a mentor, a family member, a corporation, or a non-profit entity and are administered by the College.


Make a Planned Gift to Support Students

One of the best ways to leave a legacy is to leave a legacy of opportunity. A planned gift can take the form of a simple bequest, a gift annuity contract, or a more complex trust arrangement that frequently provides tangible benefits to the donor, as well as the recipient.
