Gift of Cash

How it Works

  • You send a check, wire funds, or contribute online to Yale.
  • We use your donation for the purposes you specify.


  • Use the simplest asset to make your donation — no appraisal or acceptance requirements as with gifts of appreciated property.
  • Deliver a gift that Yale can use immediately.
  • Receive a full charitable deduction, and apply it against a larger percentage of your taxable income than a deduction for a property gift.
