Annual Giving

Annual gifts provide funds for Yale to use right away and are the most popular way for alumni and friends to support the university. Each year, more than 30,000 donors give to the Yale College Alumni Fund, the Alumni and Annual Funds of the graduate and professional schools, and the Parents Annual Fund. Their gifts range from under $25 to over $50,000. All together, these contributions provide more than $40 million to support Yale students. No matter the amount, your annual gift helps make a big difference.
