The Yale Federalist Society gratefully accepts donations from its alumni and other well-wishers. Indeed, such contributions have played an integral role in our efforts to encourage a robust and balanced marketplace of ideas at Yale Law School; many of our chapter's most important annual events -- such as the Spring Banquet (featuring a lecture on textualism by Judge Diarmuid O'Scannlain of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in 2008) and the Irving Brown Lecture Series (given by former Attorney General John Ashcroft in 2008) -- are made possible only by the generosity of our benefactors. In the past, some donors to the Yale Federalist Society have arranged to receive credit for their Yale reunion class for donations made exclusively to the Yale Federalist Society, while others have chosen to have their gifts administered by the National Federalist Society rather than by Yale. The Yale Federalist Society is currently particularly interested in receiving donations to sponsor (1) a writing fellowship for aspiring conservative and libertarian academics, (2) a yearly chapter trip to Washington to meet with alumni, judges, and government officials, and (3) support for conservative public interest work undertaken by the chapter and its members. Donations for routine operating expenses and other purposes are, of course, also very much appreciated.
If you are interested in donating to the Yale Federalist Society, please contact our Development Chair, Scott Glabe.
