School of Management Alumni Annual Giving

What do these gifts support?

Alumni gifts to the Yale School of Management are directed to the school’s core priorities and touch every aspect of the people and endeavors at Yale SOM. From financial aid that allows Yale SOM to recruit the most promising students, to funds for attracting and retaining the finest faculty, to meeting core budgetary needs in curriculum development and research support, to student activities and career development, the School of Management Alumni Fund is critical to Yale SOM.

Why participate in annual giving to the Alumni Fund?

Just as the contributions of previous Yale SOM alumni helped enrich your learning experience, you can take pride in knowing that everyone learning and teaching at Yale SOM benefits from your generosity. No matter the gift amount, your participation is important and is much appreciated.
