Ways to Pay
Vermont Law School offers a number of ways to make a gift. Donors are welcome to contribute in the form of check, credit card, gift of securities, or planned gift.
Thank you for your support!
Cash gifts are the easiest way to make a contribution to Vermont Law School and allow us to immediately put your donation to work.
Please make your check payable to Vermont Law School and send it to:
Vermont Law School
Office for Institutional Advancement
PO Box 26
South Royalton, VT 05068
If you would like to restrict your gift, please specify your designation on the memo line.
Visa or MasterCard are accepted via our secure online giving site.
Please call (802) 831-1320 to make a credit card donation over the phone.
Recurring gifts spread your total gift over time and provide a reliable stream of support that helps sustain the excellent programs at VLS. Gifts of $10, $20, or more a month add up to a generous yearly donation. All donors giving at $83.33 a month and above for three consecutive years are considered members of the VLS Leaders' Circle.
How It Works
- We will charge your credit card on a monthly, quarterly, or annual basis.
- We will send you a statement in January that can be used for tax purposes.
- Your gift will automatically renew each year.
Enroll online via our secure online giving site. Just enter the desired amount of each installment as the Gift Amount (ie $10), choose "Recurring Gift" under Gift Type, and be sure to indicate the frequency of your donation.
Making a multi-year pledge enables you to spread out a larger gift over several years and helps VLS budget by providing a reliable source of funding.
Multi-year pledges are an ideal way to make a gift in support of a building project or in honor of a class gift. Pledges are often made during a reunion year, with the full amount of your pledge counting toward your class's reunion gift total. And many of our donors make a generous pledge to the Annual Fund through the VLS Leaders' Circle.
To make a pledge online, please enter the total amount of your donation (ie $5000) as the Gift Amount, choose "New Pledge to Give" or "New Leaders' Circle Pledge" as applicable under Gift Type, and indicate how many years you would like to complete your pledge.
Gifts of appreciated securities are tax deductible at full fair-market value if the donor has owned the asset for at least one year. To avoid capital gains taxes, you must provide the securities themselves, not the proceeds of their sale.
You will need to following information to transfer your securities via DTC to Vermont Law School:
First Clearing LLC
Vermont Law School's tax ID number is 23-7251952.
Please be sure to notify VLS when transferring securities so that we know to look for its arrival. You can contact Angie Poulin in the Business Office at 802-831-1219 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Many businesses and corporations match personal gifts to educational institutions made by employees, retirees, and their family members to double their impact to VLS.
