Yale Athletics

A Lifetime of Excellence

Yale’s scholar-athletes practice valuable skills—leadership, teamwork, and resilience—that help them succeed in their sport, in their studies, and in life. Gifts to Yale athletics continue this tradition, securing resources needed to sustain the highest levels of excellence in varsity sports. At the same time, your support inspires athletes to perform at their highest levels, whether on the field or in the classroom.

Supporting Coaches and Students

Steady funding is essential to maintaining a strong collegiate sports program. Coaches develop recruiting and training strategies that span multiple seasons, and student-athletes rely on access to high-quality facilities, equipment, staffing, and flexible programmatic funds to meet the myriad demands of training and competition. In recent years, the university has built or renovated facilities for more than twenty sports, endowed twenty head coaching positions, and raised substantial program endowments. New gifts to sustain and endow operations for all sports would help to ensure a reliable funding stream for coaches and students year after year.
