Annual Gifts

Annual gifts are used to fund CWIL programs for students and practitioners. Outright gifts of cash, by check or credit card, are the easiest gifts to make. They are tax deductible in the year given. CWIL also gratefully accepts pledges – gifts that are paid over time. You can make a pledge commitment and set up a payment schedule that works best for you.

Annual gifts are recognized on CWIL’s website and donors are invited to attend CWIL events such as CWIL’s biennial lunch and to serve as faculty at the Women in Law Institute (after 7+ years of practice).

Make a donation online by using the secured server of the University of Texas Law School FoundationBe sure to select Center for Women in Law from the dropdown menu.
Gifts are recognized at the following levels:

Over $25,000
$10,000-$24,999
$5,000-$9,999
$1,000 – $4,999
Up to $999

Many employers offer matching gift programs which will match charitable contributions made by their employees.  The impact of your gift to The Center for Women in Law may be doubled or possibly tripled.  Please consult your company’s human resource department for details or give us a call.
