Annual Giving through the Yale Alumni Fund

Yale graduates contribute almost $21 million per year in annual gifts alone. The University would need an additional $500 million in unrestricted endowment funds to equal this essential support.

Annual giving to Yale through the Alumni Fund’s annual appeal provides current and immediately expendable support for the University’s basic needs, including:

Financial aid to students
Teaching and research
Facilities maintenance

The education of all Yale graduates (Yes, that includes you!) has been partially subsidized by the generosity of prior graduates. Today, this giving makes a tremendous impact in helping to defray the cost of a Yale education, which for each student is substantially more than tuition. Giving to the Alumni Fund is your opportunity to pay this gift going forward!

Have we convinced you that your contribution is needed, and makes a difference?

We hope so. To make giving to Yale as convenient as possible, we are providing a direct link to Yale College Giving. Just Click and you will find an easy to follow format for making your gift to Yale.

Memorial Gifts

The Yale College Class of 1958 Memorial Scholarship Fund was established as an endowed scholarship fund during our 45th reunion with initial gifts and pledges of $100,000. Since then the principal has increased as the result of additional gifts and the expertise of Yale’s endowment manager. The class treasury also makes a contribution to the fund as the news of each classmate’s death is recorded to be sure that no one is overlooked.

The fund was established to make sure that each member of the class is memorialized upon his death. There have also been gifts to recognize special events or accomplishments of classmates (weddings, recognitions, grandchildren, etc.). Scholarship applicants who are legacies of the Class of 1958 are given preference for these scholarships. To date, there have been 138 additional individual donors to the fund. The value of the fund as of 6/30/2020 was $565,769.
