Parents Annual Fund
Each year, the Parents Annual Fund contributes approximately $4 million to Yale College's budget, helping Dean Marvin Chun and his team support students through innovative undergraduate programming. As Yale embarks on the most ambitious fundraising campaign in its history, contributions to the Parents Fund will empower students to create, inspire, and lead across disciplines.

Areas of Support
In giving to the Parents Annual Fund, parents of Yale College students come together for our children’s futures. Your gift provides immediate and flexible support for all aspects of student life at Yale. You can direct your gift to one of three areas:
Unrestricted gifts to the Parents Fund help Yale College enhance all aspects of the student experience. With the launch of For Humanity, Yale’s most ambitious fundraising campaign to date, unrestricted support will empower students to tackle some of the most critical problems facing the world today.
Yale College is committed to admitting all qualified applicants regardless of their financial circumstances. A gift of $10,000 or more offers parents the opportunity to name a one-year Nathan Hale Associates scholarship for a current student.
Gifts to undergraduate life support community-building resources like residential college activities and Yale cultural centers, which help students bond with their peers and set the stage for transformative learning. Donations to undergraduate life also fund co-curricular programs that benefit all students.
