University of Minnesota Law School to put new pledge toward reforms
June 05, 2013
Law schools across the nation have the responsibility of training many of the aspiring legal professionals of the future. At these institutions, individuals are trained to uphold the laws that govern the country, so administrators need numerous teaching tools and facilities to make this possible.
The Robina Foundation recently added to this situation in Minnesota when it gave the University of Minnesota Law School a $9 million pledge. Two programs will be able to expand and benefit- the Robina Institute of Criminal Law and Criminal Justice and the University of Minnesota Law School Center for New Americans.
Specifically, the funds will be not only paired with previous gifts, but they will also go toward establishing the Center for New Americans by creating collaborative initiatives. The gift will also promote research and advocacy for sentencing law reforms, as this is a specialty of the university.
This sum takes a large chunk out of the $70 million, 7-year long fundraising campaign the school is embarking on.
The Robina Foundation is considered a grantmaking entity, and it has taken a special interest in numerous organizations, including the University of Minnesota's Law School, since its inception.
Organizations that are providing funds for multiple nonprofit programs might find it easier to manage their large-scale efforts with fundraising management programs that can account for funds as they are disbursed to recipients.
