The university maintains a secure site for ONLINE GIVING

The online giving form contains drop-down menus that allow you to designate the area to which your gift should be directed; you can even split the gift to support more than one area of the law school or university. Of course, you are not limited to just the areas listed on the form; you may designate your gift to any scholarship, program, or fund you wish. Our tax ID number is 94-1156617. Please contact us at (408) 551-1748 if you have any questions about gift designations.
