Three students walking on campus We Can’t Do This Without You

Gifts made to Harvard Law School from alumni and friends play a critical role in the Law School’s continued excellence, funding financial aid and faculty research, supporting experiential clinical education and curricular innovation, and ensuring student success and support even during times of public crisis.

Unrestricted gifts and endowment distributions provide 40% of HLS’s operating budget each year.


Giving Options: Support What Matters to You

There are two main ways to give to the HLS Annual Fund: 1) unrestricted gifts of any size, and 2) planned gifts that provide an additional tax or estate planning benefit.

If you are interested in making a major gift to Harvard Law School, please contact Francisco Martinez, Director of Development, at or at 617-495-4203.
