Managing Director’s Welcome

Dear Friends,

Thank you for being a member of the Yale Alumni Fund Nathan Hale Associates this year—and for all you do for Yale. We hope you enjoy this edition of Leaders in Giving.

Included in this issue is a story about an extraordinary gift from the Class of 1917 that was presented to the Class of 2017 as part of this year’s Yale College Senior Class Gift. When this remarkable act of generosity to future generations was announced to over 100 student volunteers at a kick-off reception in February, the room was filled with cheers! We have all been inspired to learn about the foresight and generosity of the Class of 1917—what a remarkable illustration of the impact of philanthropy at Yale.

Gifts to the Alumni Fund touch every corner of campus and help ensure a stellar Yale experience for all students. We are fortunate to have so many alumni and parents who continue a strong tradition of annual leadership giving, year after year. 

Thank you for being a part of this important community of donors.

Jocelyn R.H. Kane
Managing Director, Yale Alumni Fund
