Decade of Giving Honor Roll
Throughout its 100-year+ history, Yale School of the Environment has thoughtfully calibrated its focus to address the most pressing environmental challenges of the day. On issues ranging from forest management; to water, air, soil and food safety; to sustainable development; to climate change, YSE has hired the foremost experts in the field to conduct important research, design effective policy and teach the future problem-solvers of our world.

This crucial flexibility and far-ranging vision would not have been possible without the support of like-minded alumni, friends, volunteers and corporate and foundation partners.

There are many ways to give to YSE: in time, energy, and dollars. Many of our alumni choose to contribute unrestricted support to our annual fund and serve as class agent volunteers, connecting with their fellow alums and coordinating their contributions to the school.

We receive considerable support from Yale College alumni and many other donors who have no direct connection to either Yale or YSE other than a deep and abiding care for the environment and a belief that the work done by YSE is vitally important to our planet’s future. Through capital gifts, matching gifts, annual fund gifts, planned giving (trusts and bequests), real estate gifts, and many other vehicles, these generous souls ensure that YSE will remain the world’s leading environment school.

Corporations and foundations lend their support through granting funds for faculty-designed research, providing scholarships and internships for current students, and hiring YSE graduates to help the organizations navigate the complicated waters of globalization and the environment.

Support of Yale School of the Environment conveys automatic membership in a community of talented, resourceful and committed people, banded together in the common pursuit of identifying, understanding, and solving the world’s most important environmental challenges.
