Cheers to a New Year.  And...always... Go Cats! 

Happy New Year!

I hope the holiday season allows you quality time with your family and friends.

Here in Arizona we face chillier temps than usual, but there is warmth to go around.

For 40 years my family has gathered in Mammoth Lakes, CA for New Years. 
Wyatt, Owen, Evie, and Ruby take a short picture break from sledding.

And this is what our foursome _Ruby included_ look like at Mammoth on a short summer visit at the end of July...

Year-End Giving Information
If you would like to make a year-end gift, gifts can be accepted online at anytime by visiting
Here are some helpful tips to ensure your gift is counted in 2015.
Checks: All checks should be made payable to the Law College Association and mailed to The University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law, 1201 E. Speedway, Tucson, AZ 85721-0176  Checks will be processed and receipted according to the postmark date on the envelope. Thus, to receive 2015 tax credit, your check must be postmarked before December 31, 2015.

Credit Card Donations: Per IRS regulations, credit card gifts will be processed and receipted on the date the charge hits the credit card account. This means to receive 2015 tax credit, the charges must be made before December 31, 2015.

Stock transactions: Stock transactions will be processed and receipted on the date the stocks are transferred into our account. To receive 2015 credit, stocks must be transferred by the end of the day Tuesday, December 31. (Please note the bond market closes at noon EST/10:00 MST, the NYSE closes at 4:00 p.m. EST/2:00 p.m./MST.) If you are planning to transfer stock, please call Jonelle Vold at 520-626-1330 so that we can prepare for your gift.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call 520-626-1330 for assistance.

IRA Charitable Transfers have been permanently extended.
Congress and President Obama have just extended the opportunity for donors 70 1/2 or older to make an outright gift to the Law College Association through direct transfers from individual retirement accounts (IRAs) - without paying taxes on the distributions.
The law retroactively reinstates the IRA Charitable Rollover provision originally enacted into law in 2006 for all of 2015 and removes any expiration date on the provision, thereby permanently extending the Rollover into the future.
Although the timing is not ideal for gifts to be made during 2015, it still could assist those who have not taken their required minimum distribution for the year. It also significantly simplifies the process for 2016 and beyond.
If you have questions, please call 520-626-1330 for assistance. 

Please take the time to join the online alumni directory. We are trying to create a shared resource to support our students and our alumni. Indeed -- students will begin using the directory in the new year!

There are 'network' effects -- the directory is more and more valuable as more and more alumni participate.  If you would like another personalized invitation, please contact us by email or at 520-621-8430.
This week's drawing winners from among new directory members are Kristina Jonek ('98) and Damon Boyd ('98). Congratulations Kristina and Damon, and thanks for joining!

From all of us at the college, may the new year bring you happiness, good health, and success.
