Yale SOM is grateful for the thousands of alumni who support the Yale SOM Alumni Fund each year. Consistent donors are the cornerstone of Yale SOM’s success, providing critical investments that have a significant impact on the excellence of the school, the leading research of our faculty, and the educational experience of our students.
To recognize and celebrate this important group of donors, Yale SOM has launched SOM Loyal. In this first year, we are extending membership to all donors who made a gift to the Alumni Fund in 2015–16 with the hope that you will renew your support annually. After this inaugural year, new members will be invited to join when they have given to the Yale SOM Alumni Fund for three or more years.
More than 70% of all donors to the Yale SOM Alumni Fund in 2015-16 had given the year before. This incredible foundation of support helped the school achieve two key fundraising milestones last year: raising a record total of more than $3.3 million and having the highest number of donors ever to the Alumni Fund. This outstanding participation reflects the strong and vibrant alumni community which is especially important as Yale SOM enters its fifth decade.
We’ll be sharing more information about SOM Loyal in the coming months, with opportunities to thank you for your important commitment to the school.
To renew your support of the Yale SOM Alumni Fund and be a part of SOM Loyal, please make your gift online.
