What difference will you make this #WLGivingDay?

In support of our students and our future, Windsor Law is hosting a 24-hour fundraising day!

We will transform the physical space for future generations of law students, making the space more warm, welcoming and accessible. On February 25th, you can be an important part of this progress. 

Windsor Law alum Allan Stitt '88 (President and Chief Executive Officer of ADR Chambers and the Stitt Feld Handy Group) has generously agreed to match every gift (to a total of $25,000) made on giving day, doubling each gift made.

The new building will be contemporary and easy to navigate. Classrooms will be flooded with natural light and enhance the entire experience at Windsor Law. It will encourage active learning, collaboration and problem-solving. There will be new, flexible meeting spaces for student groups - to study, practice for moots and law school competitions, and to strengthen social bonds between classmates. 

Donors who make a gift on February 25th will be acknowledged in several important ways. They will be featured on our annual "WL Giving Day Difference" banner in the law school, to inspire our students and law school community to get involved each year. They will be listed in our Giving Day donor roll in our Summer edition of Access Windsor Law Newsletter, which will be circulated to alumni and friends of Windsor Law, and gifts over $1000 will be acknowledged on the donor wall. Our progress will be shared once #WLGivingDay concludes.
