Reunion Giving: Paying it forward

Your reunion is a time to reconnect with friends and classmates, but also a time to reflect on the many unparalleled experiences your Yale School of Medicine education has afforded you. Traditionally, reunion-year alumni make a special “stretch” commitment above and beyond ongoing annual support to the School to make a substantial impact on Yale School of Medicine.

Your reunion gift total recognizes all gifts made since the last reunion, including Alumni Fund contributions, capital gifts for special purposes to any area of the university, and gifts from widows/ widowers of classmates. In addition, reunion-year alumni have the opportunity to sponsor a stethoscope for an incoming student. Stethoscopes are presented at the White Coat Ceremony in August, and a card with your name and class year will be attached to a stethoscope identifying you as the sponsor.

Commitments must be made by June 30th of the reunion year to be recognized in the reunion gift total, although pledges can be paid over a multi-year period.
