Will I receive a tax receipt for my gift, and by when can I expect to get it?
You will receive a tax receipt via mail within two weeks of making your gift. If you have any questions, or to request a duplicate receipt, please email [email protected] or call 1-866-GIFTSYS.
Can I make a gift in memory of, or in honor of, an alum or professor?
Yes, this is a wonderful way to recognize someone who had an impact on your intellectual, personal, and/or professional development. We notify the person you honor (or their family in cases when this is a gift in memory of someone) of your gift.
What are the donor recognition levels?
Columbia Law School recognizes and appreciates gifts of all sizes. All donors are listed in the Annual Report of Donors. In addition, donors in the Harlan Fiske Stone Society, our most committed benefactors, receive access to exclusive communications and invitation-only events and experiences.

“Like anything else in life, giving should be a
two-way street. Once you receive an education
like this, it’s the right choice to give back.”
