Everything we do at Harvard Law School is a community effort — teaching, public service, Reunions, and more.
Community contributions are especially crucial to our fundraising efforts. Your support for the Law School is a show of what it has meant to your career and your life, and the value you place on the role it plays in society and the advancement of the legal profession.
There are many ways for HLS alumni to show their support for the Law School. Monetary gifts are always appreciated, but we are also very grateful for gifts of your time as well.
Reunion Gift Committee
Each class’s Reunion Gift Committee focuses on gift-related outreach to encourage classmates to make contributions of any size to their class’s Reunion gift campaign.
If you are interested in helping to raise money toward your class’s Reunion gift and in support of HLS’s mission and continued excellence, or want to learn more about volunteering to be part of your class’s Reunion Gift Committee, please contact Sarah Bell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Class Agent Program
The Class Agent Program (CAP) has been a staple of alumni engagement and fundraising at Harvard Law School since the mid-1950s. Participation in CAP is a great way to rekindle old friendships and start new ones while asking your HLS classmates to join you in supporting the Law School.
Last year, CAP included representatives across dozens of classes who reached out to hundreds of classmates. Their phone calls, letters, texts, and email messages helped to bolster the HLS Annual Fund and provide Dean Manning with the funds he needs to support the Law School’s curricular innovation, financial aid, campus improvements, and much more. Alumni volunteers and donors are the driving force behind CAP’s success.
Please Note: new volunteers will be welcomed in September 2021 for the 2021-22 fundraising year.
Class Agents Program Volunteer Guidebook
To help volunteers, we’ve put together a guidebook of resources, including a volunteer checklist, example text for peer to peer outreach, and more!
Harvard University’s volunteer portal CrimsonLink will be phased out at the end of the 2021 fiscal year.
Our new Volunteer Portal powered by GiveCampus will be rolled out fall 2021 to Class Agent Program volunteers. Stay tuned for more information this fall, and should you have any questions or updates, please contact us at email@example.com
