VLS Priorities and Projects
Vermont Law School carefully reviews the financial needs of every program on campus as well as larger institutional priorities, such as campus construction and endowment growth, when setting its fundraising goals. The educational opportunities and campus spaces made possible by our philanthropic donors foster interaction among students and faculty and inspire excellent work. Our current priorities and projects include the following:
The Annual Fund is a critical source of funding for academic and extracurricular student programs, financial aid, faculty salaries, and building operations. Each year, alumni and friends of the school contribute about $500,000 to the Annual Fund, allowing VLS to finance day-to-day operations as well as unexpected costs and opportunities.
The Class of 2012 has chosen to fund a physical rejuvenation of the Jonathon B. Chase Community Center. The class has set a fundraising foal of $50,000 to support the renovation and replacement of the Center's staging, lighting and sound systems, physical appearance, and furnishings.
Planned gifts provide resources that allow incredible opportunities and preserve our future. Gift types include life-income opportunities and other financial planning arrangements that can be beneficial to both the donor and the law school.
