Del Raso Family Matches the Class of 2019’s 3L Legacy Gifts

Del Raso Family

Villanova Law has a dedicated alumni community of more than 10,000 accomplished lawyers who are committed to the Law School. Many years after graduation, they continue to give back to the community that gave them so much. The generosity of alumni donors enables Villanova Law to continue on an upward trajectory and advance to higher levels of academic excellence.

Every year, third-year law students are encouraged to make a donation to Villanova Law before they graduate. This year, the Class of 2019 has the opportunity to make an even greater impact through the 3L Legacy Gift thanks to the generosity of the Del Raso Family.

Joseph Del Raso ’74 VSB, ’83 CWSL, and his daughters Katherine ’12 CLAS, ’16 JD/MBA and Marianna ’13 CLAS, have pledged to donate $500 in honor of each 3L student who makes a gift of any size to any area of the law school. Currently, 26% of the Class of 2019 have made a gift, and if they reach their goal of 89% class participation, the Del Raso Family will donate over $95,000 in matching funds to Villanova Law.

“As a Villanova graduate I continue to feel the University’s sense of community even after graduation,” said Katherine Del Raso. “Our family's commitment to Villanova continues as we support the 3L Legacy Campaign to encourage students to remember the importance of the Villanova legacy, which creates our strong sense of commitment both as students and alumni.”
