Donate to ILT

Institute Fund Raising

Who may donate to the ILT?

Any individual, philanthropic organization or private sector organization may donate funds to sustain the educational mission of the Institute for Law and Technology. Since the ILT is part of a 501(c)( 3) organization, the funds you donate to the ILT will be tax deductible. Our parent organization, The Center for American and International Law, will accept gifts dedicated for the specific use of the ILT.

Why donate to the ILT?

The ILT’s mission is to enhance the expertise of intellectual property lawyers and to promote the practice of intellectual property law. It achieves this by providing high caliber courses and conferences, facilitating networking among IP professionals, and working to build a coordinated regional community of interest. It maintains links with SMU, the Dallas Bar Association, the Dallas Regional Chamber and other organizations.

How does my donation help?

Like all educational institutions, the ILT has many demands on its funds. Its income from membership subscriptions and conference tuition goes towards its operating costs. Your funds may be used for other projects such as:

  • online course development
  • bringing national experts to our conference or classroom settings
  • outreach to law students, young lawyers and entrepreneurs
  • improvements to classroom technology
  • new programs outside the Dallas region and abroad.

Your tax deductible donation will help to sustain and expand the important work of the ILT. For more information and for an explanation of the process for donating funds to the ILT, contact the Director of the ILT (+1.972.244.3413,
