Giving to Yale

Yale College Alumni

Yale College alumni respond to Yale's diverse needs and challenges in a variety of ways:

Annual gifts provide immediately available current use funds that the university uses for day-to-day operations. From financial aid and faculty salaries to research and facilities maintenance, annual gifts are absolutely vital to Yale. For more information, see Annual Gifts.

Reunion years prompt some alumni to make gifts to the university above and beyond regular annual gifts to the Alumni Fund. For more information, see Reunion Gifts.

Capital gifts allow donors to direct sizable contributions toward specific university needs that match donor interests. For examples, see Capital Gifts.

Planned gifts and bequests provide an opportunity for donors to structure long-term deferred gifts in ways that are beneficial both to the donor and to Yale. For more information, see Planned Giving & Bequests.
