Gift Opportunities - Endowment Funds
There are numerous ways to contribute to the work happening at CBEY. We'd love to connect and find the opportunity that matches your interests.
Your gift will provide funding to support CBEY’s ongoing activities and critical resources for innovation, ensuring that the Center continues to catalyze new research, educate leaders, and cultivate partnerships that advance business solutions to global environmental problems.
CBEY’s future development and growth is dependent on the excellence of the faculty in both SOM and F&ES, especially the addition of new faculty members, to build and strengthen specific areas of expertise. Endowing a full professorship allows the schools to recruit a leading scholar into the CBEY community.
Your gift will allow CBEY to develop a Visiting Executive Fellows program, bringing leading practitioners to campus to teach and share the latest innovations and thinking from the private, non-profit, and public sectors.
Your gift will ensure strong leadership for CBEY and give the Center Director more resources to focus on supporting joint degree students, the SOM MBA for Executives program in sustainability, and on curriculum enhancements such as global online courses and new case studies.
Your gift will provide long-term flexibility and responsiveness by addressing important environmental topics and trends as they emerge over the future of the joint degree program. It is imperative that research, courses and case studies continue to evolve so students are equipped to effectively take on leadership roles that shape our shared future.
Scholarships are critically important in continuing to attract top talent to the joint degree program between SOM and F&ES. By endowing a full scholarship for a joint degree student you will ensure that the full cost of tuition is covered for the three year term of their studies.
Your gift will generate long term support for students in the three-year, joint master’s program between Yale SOM and F&ES. The greater financial burden associated with the third year of study deters many talented students from applying to the program, making scholarships an urgent funding need.
