Welcome to the Yale Club of Richmond. The Club serves the alumni, families, friends, and supporters of Yale in central Virginia, ranging from Hampton to Fredericksburg to Keysville.
The Club's purpose is to provide opportunities for Yale alumni to support the Yale community, to represent Yale and provide information about Yale to the communities in which we live, attract and interview prospective students and generally join together through educational and social activities of common interest.
There are more than 235 alumni in the immediate Richmond area. Williamsburg is home to more than 120 and the Fredericksburg area counts more than 60. Do you know the Yalies in your area? Would you like to get to know them?
The Club will support the efforts of alumni to create events that bring alumni together, whether they are wine tasting events, speaking engagements, community events, outdoor or sporting events. If you have an interest that you would like to share with local Yalies, let a Club officer know and we'll help make it happen. If you would like to make a presentation to the Club regarding your area of expertise, please let us know. The goal for presentations is that there should be a Yale connection: someone involved with the presentation should have attended or taught at Yale or be the parent of a current or graduated Yalie.
The Yale Club of Richmond is a 501(c)(3) organization. Charitable contributions to the Yale Fund of Virginia support our efforts to promote educational excellence through scholarships, grants and book awards at local high schools.
