We are encouraging a philanthropic atmosphere at UNC Law by providing an opportunity to voluntarily donate either to CPILO or to the 3L Class Endowment Fund. “Pledge A Day’s Wage” presents a chance for those who will make money from their summer employment to pledge what they will make in a single day towards a charitable purpose of their choosing. If this amount is too high, or if a person will not be making money this summer, they are encouraged to donate any amount they so choose. Again, this fundraising event is voluntary and any amount contributed to either organization will be greatly appreciated. Further, if you are unable to contribute now, we will be holding many other events over the next year. To participate, complete the fillable pdf pledge form provided below. You will be asked to provide your name, giving amount, chosen organization, and the pledge date. 



  • To participate, complete the fillable pdf pledge form which you can access at either the bottom of the page or by clicking here. You will be asked to provide your name, giving amount, chosen organization, and the pledge date. 
    • You can change the "Payable Date." The form says “Payable on September 30, 2018.” If you would like to change this date, please include a modified date in the e-mail when you send in the form. 
    • You do NOT have to physically sign the form. Type your name in the signature field. We will accept the pledge so long as: (1) Your name is typed in the signature field and (2) The typed name matches the person from whose e-mail it is sent. 
    • Please do NOT include your credit card information on the form. We do not want any credit card information being shared over e-mail.
  • Important: You DO NOT have to pay this money now. The idea behind the pledge form is that you are promising to pay the amount by the date on the form. The default date is September 30, 2018, but you can modify this date if it does not personally suit you. (Details on the modification process below)

To Submit Pledge Forms

Please e-mail the forms to Evan Hiatt at The forms will not be viewed by anyone within SBA, but will directly forwarded to UNC Law’s Office of Advancement.

Where the Money Will Go

  • Any money contributed to CPILO will fund Summer Public Interest grants.
    • Donors are able to specify any parameters they wish to place on their gift, such as designating that the money go towards a Summer Public Interest grant in an area such as Civil Rights, Domestic Abuse, etc.
  • Any money contributed to SBA will go to the 3L Class Endowment Fund.
    • In Fall of 2019, the 3L Class will vote collectively on how to direct the proceeds from the Endowment Fund. Students have traditionally voted for the proceeds to fund a Summer Public Interest Grant or a scholarship.
