Types of Gifts


Thank you for considering a gift to Seton Hall Law!

Only with your help can Seton Hall Law achieve its strategic goals and take its rightful place among the top Law Schools in job placement and the Top 10 in Health Law programs.

In deciding where to direct your generosity, it may be helpful to familiarize yourself with these terms.

Annual Gifts

Annual giving is the primary funding resource through which alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff and friends support Seton Hall Law’s day-to-day operations. Gifts can be unrestricted (to provide law school leadership with the flexibility to address immediate needs) or designated to support a specific program, student organization, scholarship or other Law School initiative.

Endowed Gifts

While annual giving provides current support, gifts to an endowment (an investment fund) provide a long-term impact because the principal — the actual gift — is never spent. Only the investment earnings from the gift are used for funding purposes. Thanks to increasingly generous philanthropy and strategic, prudent investments, Seton Hall Law’s endowment portfolio totals $ 39 million as of 2017. More about endowed gifts >>

Restricted Gifts

Which part of Seton Hall Law reflects your personal values and priorities? Is it student scholarships, student organizations or something else? Restricted giving allows donors to designate where and how their generosity will have the greatest impact. So whether you care about Centers of Excellence, moot court, faculty research or facility infrastructure, making a restricted gift will support a priority that matters most to you.

Planned Gifts

Also known as estate gifts, these agreements provide for a contribution to Seton Hall from a donor’s estate plans. Possibilities include naming the Law School in your will or as a beneficiary in your retirement plans, among many other options. More about Planned Gifts >>
