Divinity School Alumni Annual Giving

What do these gifts support?

Annual gifts to the Yale Divinity School Annual Fund are directed to the school’s most valuable asset—the students. Divinity School alumni provide essential funds for financial aid, helping to offset the financial burden of professional study at Yale.

Why participate in annual giving to the Annual Fund?

Year after year, consistent support from alumni has allowed the Yale Divinity School to maintain its high standards and to continue bringing together the most talented students, regardless of their financial needs. Just as alumni gifts once helped fund your time at Yale, you can now take pride in knowing your generosity is helping those who are here now.
