Reunion Giving

Reunions are a time to come back to Yale SOM and reconnect with your classmates, to consider how SOM has influenced your life, and to pay it forward to the next generation of SOMers. Your class’s reunion gift campaign is a peer-to-peer fundraising effort led by volunteers to inspire classmates to make stretch commitments in celebration of your reunion. Your new gift or pledge to Yale SOM during your reunion year counts toward your class’s reunion gift total and is a gift in support of Driving Purpose – The Yale SOM Campaign. Amplify your impact and invest in the future of Yale SOM.

Alumni volunteers are invaluable to Yale SOM, generously contributing their time and treasure to help drive the school’s mission forward. This year, more than 65 volunteers have stepped forward to lead by example and help SOM to keep producing tomorrow’s leaders for business and society.


“At the end of the day, what makes a difference to a school are the alumni. We have to do our share. If we’re not successful and visible, and ‘out there’, the school isn’t going to go anywhere. I’m very grateful that more than half our classmates participated. Alumni participation is so important, more so than just the amount raised.”—Y. Michele Kang ’89


“It’s important to give back to SOM, so many of us had such wonderful experiences here. My classmates came through in a way that we couldn’t have forecast. Everybody rolled up their sleeves.”—George Wyper ’84
