Firm Program

Villanova Law’s Firm Program is our workplace-based giving program.  It is a two-month fundraising challenge for law firms that employ Villanova Law alumni.

Volunteers from each firm encourage their colleagues to make a gift to the Law School during the challenge period.  Firms will be grouped by the number of VLS alumni, and the first Firm to reach 100% participation, or that has the highest participation by December 31, 2013 will receive the Firm Program Cup to prominently display.  Firms that reach 100% participation will be part of the 100% Giving Club, and will receive special recognition including:

  • Recognition in the Alumni Association’s newsletter, distributed to all students, alumni, staff, and faculty, which will contain the firms’ names as members of the 100% Giving Club
  • Recognition on the 100% Giving Club plaque near the Villanova Law Center for Career Strategy
  • Recognition on this website

Does my firm qualify to participate?

Firms with three or more Villanova Law alumni are encouraged to participate.  Firms will be divided up into groups based on number of alumni, and will compete to show their Villanova Law pride.  To enroll your firm, please contact Dana Chipko, Assistant Director of Development for Annual Giving, at 610-519-6409 or chipko@law.villanova.edu.

Where does the money go?

Alumni gifts to the Fund for Villanova Law are encouraged.  However, alumni can make their gift to any programmatic fund of their choice.  All gifts, no matter the size or to which fund, count as participation for the Firm Giving Program.  A list of available funds can be found on the “Online Giving Link”.

About Villanova's Firm Giving Program

Officially launched in 1990, the Firm Giving Program is designed to encourage annual giving support for VLS, and to help raise the annual giving participation rate among VLS graduates. The Program also provides an opportunity to foster camaraderie among VLS graduates, strengthening the Villanova Law alumni network.  Villanova Law School is grateful for the support of so many alumni at firms throughout the region who are working to advance VLS through their participation in the Law School’s Firm Giving Program.
