The Campaign For The University of Minnesota Law School

Naming Opportunities

Named gift opportunities are available for many of the funding needs identified in the Law School's long-range planning process. Named gifts may bear the donor's name or may be named to honor a spouse or other family member, a colleague, a favorite professor or mentor, or a firm or organization deserving recognition. The specific terms of these gifts are determined in consultation with the Dean.

If you are interested in named gift opportunities at the Law School, contact:

Martha Martin,
Director of Leadership Giving
612-625-2060 or marti168@umn.edu
