Class Gift 2018

Giving Back, Going Forward

As our studies at YDS come to an end and commencement approaches, we reflect on all the ways we’ve changed and grown during our years on the Quad. The YDS experience has shaped us in immeasurable ways, and we want students who come after us to have this same, transformative experience.  

We’re excited to kick off the 2018 Class Gift because it’s one way for our graduating class to change the lives of the students in the next incoming class. Currently, 94% of our students receive financial aid and could not attend YDS without this support. This statistic, and the fact that 100% of every donation to the Class Gift will be used for student financial aid, makes a compelling case.

All of us will go on to be agents of change in our respective careers, whether in service to the church, the academy, or the world. As Co-Chairs for the 2018 Class Gift, we’re excited about being change agents for future students. Please join us in kicking off the next phase of your life by giving to the Class Gift. You can make an impact right now.

Thank you!

Amanda Tatlock ’18 M.Div. and Qadry Harris ’18 M.Div.

In the words of YDS students:

“I will always remember my years at YDS as a fairytale– not because it’s fantasy– but because there are worlds within worlds here; worlds where I’ve been able to explore what it means to know something, worlds of questions, and worlds of wonder. YDS has become a sacred place where I’ve been able to grow into my questions, and explore more questions. What a precious thing it is to be encouraged to develop those worlds!”

Mia Tabib ‘18 M.Div.

“Yale Divinity School has shaped who I am today as a person, a scholar, and an advocate. While I feel like not much has changed, as I am in the thick of my theological training, my family and friends consistently tell me how I have developed in my articulation of my thoughts and beliefs. I would not be where I am without YDS and Yale - the doors that have been opened because of my experience here is unmatched by any institution. I am eternally grateful for this learning community for the formation of my relationship with God and with Christ.”

Julia Johnson ‘18 M.Div.
