Annual Giving Volunteers

Founded in 1890 as an alumni organization independent of the university, the Yale Alumni Fund is one of the oldest and most successful annual giving programs in the country. The Yale Alumni Fund provides Yale graduates and Yale College parents a way to annually contribute unrestricted funds for Yale’s current use.

Contributions to the Alumni Fund are an important resource for Yale’s operating budget and support the university’s daily operations.

Yale University’s Office of Development has managed the Alumni Fund since 1992 and relies on over 2,300 class chairs and class agents who volunteer each year for Yale College, the Graduate School, and the professional schools.
