Giving Opportunities

Your Support Matters

NAUDL’s mission is made possible thanks to the financial support of individual and corporate donors, law firms, and foundations. This funding enables us to expand our programs and reach, providing a growing number of students with the opportunity to build their skills, discover their voice and develop personal connections. By making a gift large or small, you will be investing in the lasting power of debate.

Below is a list of common ways to give. To discuss these or other ways to contribute, or to explore a strategic partnership with NAUDL, please contact:

Sponsor, Attend or Donate to an Event

NAUDL hosts its Annual Dinner and National Tournament each spring. We also host a number of events and activities through our Young Professional Leadership Boards (YPLB). Visit our events calendar or contact us to learn more.

Donor-Advised Funds

Talk to your financial advisor or manager about directing a grant or gift to NAUDL.

Gifts of Stock

Gifts of stock offer a number of benefits to the donor. Contact us or download instructions below to transfer securities.

Monthly Giving (Recurring Donation)

Consider giving a monthly gift and reinvesting in NAUDL all-year long.
On a budget and think $10 or $25 doesn’t make an impact? Multiply that by 12 and you have made a gift of more than $100 to NAUDL’s programs without breaking the bank!

Matching Gifts

Matching gifts allow you to increase the value of your gift. Please check to see if your employer matches your personal contributions. Participating donors will receive soft credit for every dollar matched by their employer.

Workplace Giving

Many employers offer workplace giving opportunities for you to designate funds to causes that are important to you. Payroll deductions, giving campaigns (e.g. United Way) or internal fundraisers (e.g. jeans day) offer easy, and even fun, platforms to give to NAUDL.

Planned Giving

Speak to your financial planning team about a bequest or planned a legacy gift to NAUDL.

In-Kind Gifts
