A thank-you to YDS donors


For nearly 200 years, Yale Divinity School has inspired the minds that have inspired church and world. Your support secures the continuation of that vital mission.

Giving to YDS

There are a number of ways to support YDS and our goals.  Our highest priority is for student financial aid.  You can give to the Annual Fund or endow a scholarship fund.   If you are interested supporting YDS in other areas, please contact the development office.

Donors and Friends

In an increasingly global world, the teaching and training of the future leaders of church and world has never been more challenging. We rely heavily on the moral and financial support of alumni and friends.
