The CUNY School of Law Foundation

GuideStar Exchange Silver Participant

Students come to study at CUNY School of Law because they want to change the world. The CUNY School of Law Foundation is here to help make that happen.

The Foundation is CUNY Law’s philanthropic partner, a place for alumni, faculty, staff, students, and the community to come together to support our students. The money we raise enhances student learning and fulfills the school’s mission of graduating outstanding public interest attorneys and enhancing the diversity of the legal profession.

A dedicated volunteer Board of Directors governs the Foundation.
