Law Firm Giving Challenge Results
Law Firms Show Their Orange Pride
We're excited to share the results of our first-ever Law Firm Giving Challenge! In April, we challenged our alumni at Syracuse-area law firms to mobilize support for their alma mater by holding a friendly giving competition. All gifts made during Syracuse University’s 2018 Fiscal Year (July 1, 2017 – June 30, 2018) counted toward the challenge.
Congratulations to this year’s challenge winners:
Winner! Harris Beach, PLLC: 74% Participation Rate
Winner! Bousquet Holstein, PLLC: 43% Participation Rate
Winner (tie)! Bottar Law: 100% Participation Rate
Winner (tie)! Riehlman, Shafer and Shafer: 100% Participation Rate
Congratulations to the runners up: Barclay Damon LLP and Bond, Schoeneck & King.
Many thanks to all the firms that participated and to all participating alumni. We are proud of our Syracuse family of alumni, and we’re already looking forward to next year’s challenge—make a gift now to get a jump-start on your firm’s participation in the FY’19 challenge.
Special thanks also to our Challenge Leaders, who generously donated their time to encourage colleagues to take part in this important effort:
The Law Firm Giving Challenge will be held each spring, leading up to the University’s fiscal year end on June 30. Join the Challenge! Help establish a tradition of philanthropy among your alumni family. By supporting all the components of a first-class legal education, you’ll leave a legacy for the students who follow in your footsteps.
