About Reunion Giving

What counts as a Reunion gift?

When you participate in Reunion giving, you’re adding to the cumulative generosity of generations of Vanderbilt Law School alumni. Gifts of all sizes help ensure that today’s students have the same incredible experience that you had. With a gift, you also put your class closer to achieving its Reunion fundraising goals.

Vanderbilt recognizes its most loyal donors with membership in the Oak Leaf Society. Membership is attained after the second year of consecutive giving. Learn more about the Oak Leaf Society, including information about buying back years.

Any outright gift (cash or securities), matching company gift, payment on a pledge, or new multiyear pledge made between July 1, 2018, and December 31, 2019, will count toward the Reunion class giving total. To be counted in Reunion 2019 participation totals, the gift or first pledge payment must be received by December 31, 2019. The full value of multiyear pledges will be included in Reunion 2019 dollar totals. Also, planned gifts (e.g., documented bequests) factor into a class' total for the classes of 1989, 1984, 1979, 1974, 1969.

Most Reunion gifts are unrestricted to the Law School’s Annual Fund, but you may designate your gift to the area of the Law School that matters most to you—to a student organization or journal that meant a lot to you during your time as a student or to a scholarship fund that changes the lives of current students or to a scholarship fund.

Thank you for supporting Vanderbilt Law School!
