If you are interested in giving a gift to support financial aid for the Yale Young Global Scholars Program, there are a variety of options for you, including cash, checks, credit card payments, gifts of marketable securities, and other assets.

Your gift can have an even greater impact if your company has a matching gift program. In some cases, your spouse’s company may match your gift. Find out here if your company will match your contribution. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift from your employer, and send it to Yale’s Office of Development completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest.
