Class Giving Projects

What are Class Giving Projects?

Class Giving Projects are about Schulich Law alumni reuniting with their class and working together to make a difference in the lives of current and future students. Whether it’s used for a scholarship or bursary, for enhancing the student experience, or for other initiatives that classes are passionate to support, Class Giving Projects offer alumni a chance to leave a legacy while fulfilling a need of students at the law school. These projects are funded through the direct solicitation of the individuals in the class and receive guidance from Dalhousie’s Office of Advancement, specifically the Annual Giving team.

How can the Schulich School of Law help with my class giving project?

Dalhousie’s Annual Giving team will work with you and provide key support to help with the success of your Class Giving Project.

This includes:
• Connecting with the relevant faculty to align your class project with their current priorities and areas of greatest need;
• Creating a gift agreement, which outlines the criteria of the fund and ensures the intentions of the class are carried out for years to come, and an account to hold the funds at Dalhousie until they are ready to be used;
• Providing a list of names of alumni who can be contacted about the project;
• Assisting with the creation and distribution of communications, including emails, letters, phone scripts and social media posts;
• Creating an online giving link to provide easy donation options;
• Providing regular updates to the Glass Giving Project Committee about the total funds raised.

The impact of giving


"Although bursaries are monetary gifts, they really are more than that. It's a message saying 'We made it, so can you, and here's a little help.'"
