With appreciation for his generosity and partnership, former resident, Dr. Paul Tabereaux, HS ’05, helped to boost medical student support in a major way in December by matching ALL Alumni Fund contributions, up to $100K! Kicking off on Giving Tuesday, November 28 through December 31, the YSM Alumni Fund raised an additional $419,317 to support the YSM student experience. Here are just a few successes from the year-end challenge:

  • The Fund welcomed 55 new and reacquired alumni and friends to the donor community.
  • Over 100 donors made a gift larger than the previous year.
  • 9 gifts were received at the $10K+ leadership level. 3 alumni donors have named one-year Dorothy Horstmann Scholarships.
  • 76% of gifts received were $500 and under.
  • Many gifts included tributes to family members, faculty, mentors, and friends who had an impact on the donor’s Yale experience.

THANK YOU to our volunteers who serve as ambassadors to the Fund and THANK YOU to all of our generous donors within the alumni community. Collectively, you are helping YSM to attract the brightest and most passionate students from all backgrounds, regardless of their circumstances.
