Improving Lives through Innovative Research and Education

Donors have been vital partners throughout the Yale School of Public Health’s history. A transformative gift launched the School in 1914 under the visionary stewardship of C.-E. A. Winslow. In recent years, our donors have provided the school with the resources to help grow its student body, world-class faculty and programs to meet the demands for a premiere education in public health in the 21st century.

Your contribution to the Yale School of Public Health is an investment in improving health around the world. Your gift helps educate the next generation of the public health work force to do the research and implementation that drive change. Your gift also allows YSPH to actively promote racial, gender, ethnic and socioeconomic diversity here at the school and in our work. It allows our students greater access to rich learning opportunities through internships, research and social entrepreneurship. It allows faculty more freedom and creativity in their research. And it allows Yale to to be the standard bearer for innovative educational programming such as our case-based experiential learning tools and interdisciplinary concentrations and tracks in global health, modeling and regulatory affairs. 

Many of the school’s most significant accomplishments and current projects—in areas such as metabolomics, disease modeling, climate change and health—have been supported by donors committed to improving the well-being of communities worldwide. 

At critical moments in our history, the Yale School of Public Health's alumni and friends have invested in our future and in a shared vision for a healthier and more equitable world. We hope you will join us in this critical venture.
