Why is your gift important?
Your support of the Thomas M. Cooley Law School is key to our quest of providing a high quality legal education to all who desire it.
Cooley is also committed to providing a legal education to people from all walks of life. Cooley is proud of all its diverse national and international student body where students, through fair and objective admission policies, have the opportunity to learn the law. Tomorrow's leaders learn from today’s leaders, and it is vitally important to support the education of our next generation of leaders.
Cooley is a young law school, and participation is key to building a tradition of philanthropy. Every gift makes a difference. It is your participation and giving, year after year, that is important. When more of Cooley’s alumni and friends give, it demonstrates to prospective students, employers and donors that those people who are closest to the School value Cooley’s contribution to their lives, trust in its leadership, and believe in its future.
Each year alumni and friends express their loyalty and interests in the people and programs of Thomas M. Cooley Law School. The financial contribution of graduates and friends of Cooley supports the next generation of attorneys, judges, elected officials, public interest law providers, corporate leaders and entrepreneurs that enhances the legal profession as a whole.
Private support of a private institution is more than a tradition – it is critical to increasing the stature of our school. Providing for the future requires greater resources than tuition alone can or should be expected to provide. The support by graduates and others for the common good is one of the most vital principles of our society and our legal community. Support for private education must increase if the next generation of lawyers is to be able to serve the community and the profession.
Philanthropy, so distinctly American, improves the human condition. Philanthropic support of education benefits everyone immeasurably.
