When you make a major gift, you make a special investment in Cardozo and in its future. You help to spur the Law School's continued advancement and assure its place as a leader in legal education. Your gifts can be made outright or as a pledge to be paid over a period of time, generally no longer than five years, and can include:

  • Establishing an endowment fund, where interest income is designated for a specific use such as a scholarship, academic and/or lecture program, or faculty chair.
  • Creating a lasting source of support matching a donor's interest with a school priority. The remaining interest is reinvested in the fund to protect and grow the principal in perpetuity.
  • Directing that the gift be spent—over a period of years —to support pressing needs such as current-use scholarships, facility renovations, public interest summer stipends, or the loan repayment assistance program (LRAP).
  • Creating a naming opportunity, where you associate your name or that of a loved one with an interest area you have chosen to support, or using the gift to honor or to memorialize another person. 

There are unlimited and exciting opportunities available that support Cardozo's ambitious journey and match your preferences or interests. Following is a selected list of some of our current naming opportunities.

Please contact Dyer Ridley, Associate Dean of Institutional Advancement and Alumni Affairs, at 212.790.0270 or dyer.ridley@yu.edu to learn more about the law school, schedule a visit, or discuss ways to support Cardozo School of Law.
