Some companies and law firms will match the charitable contribution of an employee or spouse, allowing the donor to increase his or her gift. If your employer or spouse’s employer has a matching gift program, you can obtain a matching gift form from your human resources department, complete and sign it, and submit the form with your gift.

Gifts of appreciated securities can be beneficial to the donor as well as to the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University. No capital gains tax is paid upon the transfer of stock, and the donor receives an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift. Stock transfer can be made through a broker, by mail or by hand. Please call the Office of External Relations at (516) 463-4673 for more information.

Giving to The Fund for Hofstra Law in honor or in memory of someone is a great way to acknowledge that person and support the Law School.

The more than 13,000 alumni who have passed through our doors are now excelling in all types of law, business, government and much more. Our renowned professors have diligently taught our students the law, some for well over 30 years. Honor them with a gift to The Fund for Hofstra Law. We will send a personalized notification that a gift has been made. Please indicate in the “Comments/Questions” box where the notification should be mailed.

A planned gift is a tangible way to endorse the mission of Hofstra Law and to ensure its work for the future. We are grateful to those who have already stepped forward to make such commitments and trust that their leadership will inspire others. Although most people think of planned gifts as involving large sums of money, many are relatively modest in size. All are important, however, and will have an impact on future programs. For more information on arranging these donations, please contact the Office of External Relations at (516) 463-4673.
