Annual Report of Giving highlights Yale’s historic year

Fiscal 2020–2021 was Yale’s most successful fundraising year on record. This year’s annual report showcases the contributions from the university’s generous donors and volunteers who made it possible.

Yale’s 2020–2021 fiscal year, which ended on June 30, was the university’s most successful fundraising year ever. Read this year’s annual report, which includes a summary of the year’s highlights.

“Nearly 44,000 donors contributed $1.180 billion in gifts and new pledges to accelerate Yale’s mission of improving the world today and for future generations,” wrote President Peter Salovey ’86 PhD in an email to alumni, parents, and friends of the university who gave at all levels throughout the year.

Among the many who contributed to Yale, several made transformative gifts to enable exciting new initiatives. These include tuition-free education at the David Geffen School of Drama at Yale University, the creation of the Wu Tsai Institute, and the launch of the Center for Natural Carbon Capture at Yale. Donor contributions also helped Yale strengthen its financial aid offerings, increase accessibility, and foster student support efforts. Throughout Yale College and the graduate and professional schools, vital initiatives promoting diversity, equity, belonging, and inclusion received funding.

These gifts and others help set the stage for Yale’s most ambitious capital campaign to date, For Humanity, which launched in October.
