Why We Give

  • A gift from Yale comes full circle, leaving a legacy

    David Leof, M.D. ’65 and his wife, Colleen, have made a bequest that will support medical students who have distinguished themselves in the arts or humanities.
  • For a saver who started out with little, this gift provides income for life

    Harold Bornstein, M.D. ’53 celebrates with Megan Rowlands ’16 after her clinical elective in Mexico, which was funded by Dr. Bornstein and his late wife, Maureen.
  • Becoming a hope-giver, with an unexpected benefit

    Jonathan and Françoise Friedlaender receive income from a charitable gift annuity that will eventually fund cancer research.
  • IRA rollover gets the ball rolling on Simulation Center endowment

    Irwin Braverman, M.D. ’55 was so impressed when he toured the Yale Center for Medical Simulation that he made an endowment gift from his IRA.

Yale gave us our start. This just felt right.

After moving to a retirement community, Stephen and Carol Schimpff made a gift of their former home to Yale. The proceeds will fund a scholarship in their names.
