Planned giving

How one generation lifts up the next

Members of the Class of 2015 celebrate on Commencement Day

A solid financial future — it is a goal that you and Yale School of Medicine share in common. You have been careful about building your assets and providing for your family. You remember the Yale System of Medical Education and how you benefited from it. You are also committed to the academic excellence and world-class research and clinical care that make YSM great. Can you advance all of these objectives at the same time?

Yes — with a planned gift to Yale School of Medicine.

With a planned giving strategy tailored to your own personal and financial situation, you can put your assets to work for YSM — while you and the School of Medicine share in the benefits, such as:

  • Leaving a meaningful legacy.
  • Ensuring a secure income stream for you or a loved one.
  • Achieving savings on your income and estate taxes.
  • Enjoying the peace of mind that comes with partnering with Yale’s sound financial management.
  • Experiencing the satisfaction of advancing the school’s mission of training leaders in medicine and biomedical research.

There are many planned gift options available at Yale. If one of these strategies seems right for you, we invite you to contact us:

Message from the Dean

Dear Alumni and Friends,

Bequests and other planned gifts to the School of Medicine have an enormous impact on the school’s ability to launch new initiatives, fund innovative programs, and pursue excellence across its three core missions. Donors have created professorships to support top scientists and clinicians and provided funds for laboratory equipment and new curricula. They have endowed scholarships to enable all admitted students to benefit from a Yale education, regardless of their financial situation.

I invite you to join with other alumni and friends of the school in this shared effort and to consider how the school might be included in your plans. Your support will leave a lasting legacy.

Dean Robert J. Alpern MD
Ensign Professor of Medicine
