Alumni Communications

Philanthropy plays an important role in the advancement of medicine and science. Gifts from private donors - alumni, friends, patients, corporations and foundations - support innovative research, clinical programs that bring the latest advances to our patients, and education for the next generation of physicians and scientists. We welcome your partnership in this important work. If you share our vision and wish to join us finding new approaches to unsolved challenges, contact one of our development officers. Each is ready to assist you in creating a gift plan that matches your philanthropic goals with giving opportunities at Yale School of Medicine.
