Lifetime Giving Societies
The Lifetime Giving Societies is San Joaquin College of Law’s most prestigious donor recognition organization. Each society allows the law school to honor the leadership and generous support of alumni, friends, faculty, staff and colleagues who have been and are a vital source in shaping the past, present, and future of our institution.
Society members have made a special commitment of leadership, involvement, and resources to ensure SJCL continues to be the leader in providing excellent legal education in the Central Valley.
To become a member into the societies, an individual must have contributed cumulative gifts, over time, equal to $2,500 or more to the law school by December 31st of each year. Qualifying gifts include:
- Cash, securities, real estate or gifts-in-kind;
- Irrevocable deferred gifts (trust, gift annuity, life insurance policy)
“About 40 years ago, the founders of SJCL had a dream to provide an opportunity to receive a quality legal education, such that they and the community at large could benefit from. Through giving of their time, talents and treasure, SJCL was born and has grown into what it is today. I want to encourage all who have benefited from receiving their legal education at SJCL to recognize what others gave to provide that opportunity and recognizing that but for their gifts, that opportunity wouldn’t have been here for them. Begin, and continue to give, that others might continue to receive the same opportunity. Philantrophy means to me, giving of your time, talent and treasure. I have learned the joys and responsibilities of giving, and that is why I support SJCL and its excellent legal program!”
