How You Can Give Now
There are many ways you can help support our mission.
Two basic types of giving are endowed funds and current-use gifts. Endowed funds, managed by the Yale Investments Office, offer a permanent legacy. Current-use gifts are donations spent down in their entirety in support of the center. Gifts reaching certain levels may be named.
Here are some of the ways in which you may consider supporting our center and the cause of sex and gender equity in health research and health care.
Give through the mail
Gifts and pledges made by check or cash can be mailed to our main office.

Give for your reunion
As proud members of the Yale community, we at WHRY possess a profound sense of social responsibility that we share with current and former students, faculty, and staff. We all know what it means to have the opportunity to study, teach, and work here. And we all know what it means to share what we can with the rest of the world.
All gifts to Women’s Health Research at Yale, as with other Yale University priorities, receive full Yale College reunion credit.
Gifts in partnership with us
Through Planned Giving, WHRY can help interested donors make larger gifts than they thought possible, including options that can increase income to keep pace with inflation, avoid capital gains taxes, and reduce estate tax liability.
To become a partner in our success, planned giving options include:
Gifts by Will or Living Trust
As simple as leaving a dollar amount or percentage of your estate to WHRY in a will or trust, this method can also include naming WHRY as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy or of the remaining funds in a retirement plan or IRA
Charitable Gift Annuities — Immediate or Deferred
A gift of cash or securities to WHRY, resulting in a lifetime annuity for the donor or an income stream for a loved one
Charitable Remainder Trusts
A trust of securities which will pay income to the donor or loved ones for a number of years, with the remainder at the end of the term of the trust donated to WHRY
Gifts of Appreciated Securities
The gift of stocks, bonds, or mutual funds that have appreciated in value, thus avoiding taxes on built-in capital gain
