Why Do Alumni Give to Their Reunion Campaigns?

The gifts that many alumni choose to make in honor of their Reunion comprise an important and significant portion of the HLS Annual Fund, which closes monetary gaps for critical priorities such as need-based financial aid, hands-on clinical education, and community legal aid.

Many choose to make a gift to their Reunion Campaign to pay forward the financial aid they received as students, while others choose to do so in honor of special classmates or faculty, or in recognition of the doors that their Harvard Law School education opened for them in their careers.

How to Make a Reunion Gift

If you are interested in making a gift in honor of your current or upcoming Reunion, please check the pledge periods for your Reunion year. You can also search for your HLS class officer below and contact them directly about making a gift. You can make a Reunion gift online at any time.

Your class has an official Reunion Gift Campaign, and any gift or gifts you make to any HLS priority during the pledge period will count toward your class’ campaign total.

Joining the Reunion Gift Committee

Each class’ Reunion Gift Committee focuses on gift-related outreach to encourage classmates to make contributions of any size to their class’ Reunion gift campaign.

If you are interested in helping to raise money toward your class’s Reunion gift and in support of HLS’ mission and continued excellence, or want to learn more about volunteering to be part of your class’ Reunion Gift Committee, please contact Sarah Bell at
