Yale Alumni Fund

$ 25 - $ 50,000  

Gifts to the Alumni Fund provide current and immediate support for the University’s most pressing needs. Unlike restricted endowment funds, which can be used only for limited purposes, Alumni Fund gifts can be used anywhere on campus to address opportunities as they arise. Yale relies on Alumni Fund gifts to moderate the cost of tuition, maintain need-blind admissions, support student life, renovate the residential colleges, and conduct a host of teaching and research activities.

Donors can name a term scholarship with a minimum $10,000 unrestricted contribution to the Alumni Fund. The scholarship, in effect for one school year, can be named to honor a friend or memorialize a loved one. Many donors enjoy corresponding with the students receiving their scholarships, a personal and direct way to learn about the impact of their giving.
