Yale College

Unlock the Door to Opportunity

A gift to Yale College lays the foundation for a great education—and a better world. Promising students from every background come here for an undergraduate experience like no other. The university is dedicated to supporting them as they study, learn, and lay the foundations for their lives. Generous donors are the key. From the curriculum to campus, and from financial aid to programs that sustain mental health and wellness, your gifts unlock the promise of a Yale College education and set our students on the path to leadership.

Help Students Flourish

A Yale College education stands on an excellent faculty, superb curriculum, robust extracurricular programs, and a distinctive campus. Every year, Yale invests even more in the undergraduate experience—and your giving plays an essential part. You can help fund a distinguished, capable, and diverse faculty. You can accelerate new course development, bring technology to classrooms, and expand the use of object-study rooms. Outside the classroom, your generosity sustains a range of meaningful experiences, from athletics to the arts and from entrepreneurship to community service. And your support of the campus means all this learning unfolds in an inspiring and state-of-the-art setting.
