2020-2021 School of Law Honor Roll of Donors

The Washburn University Alumni Association and Foundation and Washburn University School of Law extend their gratitude to each and every donor. Every gift makes a difference at Washburn Law. The Honor Roll of Donors is a way to recognize those who made gifts of more than $250 to Washburn Law during the fiscal year July 1, 2020, through June 30, 2021. You can also view a list of all donors by class year. 

The Dean’s Circle recognizes donors giving $1,000 or more each year to Washburn Law. Members are invited to select events at the law school and around the country. They are also recognized on a donor plaque, prominently displayed in the lobby of the Washburn Law building. Membership is renewable on an annual basis.

The Washburn University Alumni Association and Foundation and Washburn Law have made every effort to ensure the information in the Honor Roll of Donors is as complete and accurate as possible. However, if errors have occurred, please contact us in regard to inaccurate information.
