John Sherman Myers Society

To recognize and honor our most loyal donors to WCL, the John Sherman Myers Society recognizes donors making annual contributions of $2,500 or more. The Myers Society was established to honor former Dean John Sherman Myers and his wife, Alvina Reckman Myers, who dedicated their professional lives and personal wealth to AUWCL and our students. Since its inception three decades ago, the Myers Society has had a visible impact on AUWCL students by providing critical funding for scholarships, technological developments, facilities, academic initiatives, and student services.

When you make your gift of $2,500 or more to WCL, you automatically become a member of our Myers Society. With your recognition as a Myers Society member, you will receive special invitations to events, receive our bi-annual newsletter, and receive priority communications from WCL leadership.


Mooers Society

Washington College of Law’s Mooers Society was established in 1990 to acknowledge individuals who have included the Washington College of Law in their estate plans and have named WCL as a beneficiary (revocably or irrevocably) in their will, life insurance, charitable gift annuity, charitable trust, retirement account, or similar vehicle.

Individuals who include WCL in their estate plans and make their intentions known to the university are invited to accept membership in the Mooers Society. The Society is named in honor of the Mooers family to recognize their involvement with WCL for nearly a century. Edwin A. Mooers, ’14 and his son, Edwin A. Mooers, Jr., ’41, were students, alumni, and faculty members of this law school. Edwin A. Mooers, Jr. ’41, a founding member of the Mooers Society, made a transformational gift to the school through his estate.

As members of the Mooers Society, you will be acknowledged in WCL publications (anonymity request respected), invitations to special events throughout the year, and personalized, professional charitable gift planning assistance.


If you are interested in making a gift at any of these levels, please contact:
