How To Give

Giving to Slifka

Less than one-half of our operating expenses are covered by our endowment income, therefore we must rely on our Annual Fund campaign to cover the rest. Current Use (Annual Fund) gifts are applied to our most pressing needs.

Both Current Use and Endowment gifts may be made in memory or in honor of a loved one or special occasion. If your gift is being made in honor of or in memory of someone, please tell us on the online donation form, or indicate with your mailed check or on the phone.

If you would like to direct your gift to a specific program or event, wish to discuss options for a multi-year pledge of $10,000 or more, or would like to include the Joseph Slifka Center in your estate planning (including through Yale’s Planned Giving programs), please contact Cecelia Clark at (203) 432-4084 or by email at [email protected]

All gifts to Joseph Slifka Center are tax deductible, 501(c)3 #06 1257354.
