Dean’s Annual Fund

YSN students at an event

Gifts to the YSN Dean’s Annual Fund provide current and immediate support for YSN’s most pressing needs. The school relies on annual giving to support student life, offer financial aid, respond to unanticipated emergencies, and fund critical educational and research activities. Annual Fund gifts are used by the dean to address challenges and opportunities at YSN as they arise.

Have your gift matched!
Did you know some employers will match their employees’ philanthropic support? Find out if your company will match your contribution.
If your company (or your spouse’s) participates, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it to Yale (at the address below) completed and signed with your gift. We’ll do the rest. Matched gifts may double or even triple your original gift amount.  
Nancy Kraus“I have given regularly to YSN because the school helped me establish a 40-year midwifery career that I loved.  There was still federal money for nursing student loans at a low interest rate when I was in graduate school.  The students today don’t have access to that kind of financial support, and most graduates leave YSN with debt.  I was in the 2nd class of what is now called the GEPN program; Yale was one of the pioneers in transitional career education and for that reason also deserves to be supported.”
