Your gift to Harvard Law School matters.

Your commitment has a direct impact on the Law School’s continued excellence, creating opportunities for innovative learning, and ensuring the HLS education is affordable for all admitted students, regardless of financial need.

“…by giving to Harvard, you create and empower change makers. It’s a more catalytic way of giving. A gift to Harvard is an investment in leadership and in the agents who are going to create the change we want to see in perpetuity.”

– Sangu Delle JD/MBA ’16
Students share their perspectives on life at Harvard Law School, the caliber and diversity of its supportive community, the many benefits of the school’s Zero-L, mentorship, and clinical programs, and the role financial aid plays in making an HLS education possible for so many.

Making Your Gift

Each year, gifts to the Harvard Law School Annual Fund play a critical role in limiting tuition increases and in supporting key initiatives. Alumni and friends can contribute to Harvard Law School through a variety of methods.
