Celebrating Excellence

Building on a century of innovation, education and service

Donors have been vital partners throughout the Yale School of Public Health’s history. A transformative gift a century ago launched the School, and a second gift nearly fifty years later built what is our main building today.

Many of the school’s most significant accomplishments and current projects—in areas such as genomics, disease modeling, and global health—have been supported by donors committed to improving the well-being of communities worldwide. Many of our top students study with our world-class faculty as a result of gifts that made their education possible.

At critical moments in its history, the school’s alumni and friends have invested in its future, public health, and in a shared vision of a healthier world.
