Ways to Give
The simplest, most common means of giving to The John Marshall Law School is to make a gift of cash, securities or personal property.
Make a Pledge
A pledge is an excellent demonstration of your committment to helping John Marshall advance its mission of providing access and opportunity. Your pledge allows you to choose what specific initiative you would like to support, for how long, and at what dollar amount.
Gifts of Appreciated Securities
Your gift of appreciated securities, such as stocks , bonds, shares in a mutual fund, or securities that you have owned for more than 12 months, impact John Marshall and gives you a charitabe income tax deduction at full market value, without any capital gains taxes.
Strange as it may sound, a gift of "startling significance" often can be made at very low cost. It's just a matter of planning what to give, how to give and when to give.
Cy Pres Award
Cy Pres awards are residual funds in class action cases (and occasionally in other types of proceedings like bankruptcy and probate matters) that, for any number of reasons, are unclaimed or cannot be distributed to the class members or beneficiaries who were the intended recipients.
