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.
Reunion Engagement Committee
Each class’s Reunion Engagement Committee (REC) focuses on non-gift outreach to encourage classmates to participate in Reunion weekend, update their contact information, and write a narrative for the Class Directory (Red Book); works to create a robust class symposium; and supports regional engagement efforts through pre-Reunion events. As an active member of your REC, you serve as both a class leader and liaison between your peers and HLS.
If you are interested in joining your classmates in promoting your Reunion and encouraging attendance, please contact Pete Mumma at email@example.com for more information.
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. It’s a great way to rekindle old friendships and start new ones while asking your HLS classmates to support the Law School.
Last year, CAP included representatives from 50 different classes who reached out to more than 1,200 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.
