Annual Fund

The School of Forestry & Environmental Studies has offered me so many educational and extra-curricular opportunities to pursue my passions and motivate positive environmental change.

Where can I direct my support at the F&ES Annual Fund?
  • NEW Dean’s Priorities: Support the Dean’s highest priorities
  • NEW Internships: Support students during their  internship
  • NEW School Forests: Support projects at the School Forests
  • Unrestricted: Support a variety of initiatives around F&ES
  • Financial Aid: Support financial aid for current F&ES students
Why support the F&ES Annual Fund?
  • All gifts to the F&ES Annual Fund directly support F&ES. When you give to the F&ES Annual Fund, you’re supporting the students and faculty that make this School the best forestry and environmental studies school in the country.
  • Many endowed funds are tailored to specific needs, and aren’t able to address all of the needs of the School as they arise. This is why the flexible, unrestricted funds provided by gifts to the F&ES Annual Fund are so important.
  • Just as alumni helped fund your time at Yale, you can now take pride in knowing your generosity is helping the next generation of environmental leaders.

Become a consistent giver today!

The Great Mountain Society, established in 2013 as a pilot program recognizing F&ES’s youngest alumni, will now welcome consistent givers from all classes. Ordinarily, it takes five years of giving to join the Society, but to celebrate the expansion, all alumni who make a gift to the F&ES Annual Fund in Fiscal Year 2016-17 will be welcomed. To remain a member going forward, simply renew your gift each year. There’s never been a better time to become a consistent supporter of F&ES!
