We have a dedicated volunteer board which makes our many excellent programs happen – but, we rely on your continued contributions to support our work. We get no financial assistance from Yale University. With your financial gifts and volunteer assistance we are able to keep regional alumni connected and:

  • Host engaging programs on the economy, politics, the arts, sports, and Yale University.
  • Promoting and enhancing the reputation of Yale University in our region.
  • Assist area nonprofits and students by sponsoring Yale summer intern fellows, through the AYA Community Service Summer Fellowship Program as well as Bulldogs on the Lakes.
  • Interview more than 200 potential Yale College applicants and welcome new matriculants.
  • Encourage and acknowledge outstanding high school juniors in our region with Yale Book Awards.
