Make a bequest to Yale School of Medicine

Leave a lasting legacy

Making a bequest...

... to Yale School of Medicine allows you to manage your assets and meet your family’s financial needs during your lifetime.

  • Make a bequest of cash, securities, or other property.
  • Designate a specific dollar amount, a particular asset, or a fixed percentage of your estate for Yale School of Medicine.
  • Leave all or a portion of your residuary estate to Yale School of Medicine after you have provided for your other beneficiaries.

A charitable bequest will support future generations of YSM students and faculty and have a profound impact on medical education, research, and clinical innovation at the school.

A gift from Yale comes full circle, leaving a legacy
