Published: 7/12/2017

June 30th, 2017 marks the end of our 2016- 2017 Fiscal Year and we are incredibly proud and appreciative of the over 960 alumni who supported Southwestern. Each year, we seek to reach 1,000 alumni donors and generate support for our Annual Fund, which helps support the law school's most pressing needs. Although we were a bit short of our donor goal, we are incredibly grateful for everyone's participation as we were able to secure larger contributions through not only one but two challenges this year!
