Thank you for considering a gift to Villanova Law. There are numerous ways that you can support the Law School. 

No matter how you choose to invest, you will be part of a group of committed donors who are helping to create transformational experiences for Villanova Law students today and tomorrow. 


As part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act passed in March 2020, cash contributions to qualified nonprofits such as Villanova can be deducted up to 100% of your adjusted gross income for the 2021 calendar year. This allows taxpayers filing single/separately who take the standard deduction to make up to $300 of charitable contributions to qualified nonprofits this year, and taxpayers filing jointly to make up to $600 in contributions. To qualify, you must make your gift before December 31, 2021.
