Become a member of Yale Legacy Partners

Join us in building the future of Yale.

Yale Legacy Partners was created to recognize and thank alumni, family, and friends who have made a bequest or planned gift to Yale School of Medicine. By becoming a Yale Legacy Partner, you join the company of many who have helped to provide for generations of students and scholars to come. Most importantly, you will be making an invaluable contribution to securing the future for the School of Medicine. 

You are eligible for membership in Yale Legacy Partners if you have named Yale as a beneficiary of your: 

  • Will or trust. 
  • IRA or other retirement plan. 
  • Life insurance policy. 
  • Life income or other planned gift (charitable gift annuity, pooled income fund, charitable remainder trust, charitable lead trust, or remainder interest in a personal residence). 

If your bequest intention or planned gift information is not already included in our records, you will be asked to complete and sign a member profile indicating your wish to become a member of Yale Legacy Partners. Note that information regarding the amount, nature, or designation of the bequest or gift is not required.
