The Yale Club of Southwest Florida's mission is to foster a vibrant local community of Yale alumni, parents, faculty and other interested persons in the Southwest Florida area. In fulfilling that mission, the Club coordinates social and educational events throughout the year to continue the rich experiences enjoyed as undergraduate and graduate students at Yale. Additionally, the Club raises funds for the benefit of scholarships at Yale, seeks out and recruits qualified students to apply to Yale, sponsors educational programs, and undertakes other activities which support the University.

Yale Club members, their spouses, family, friends or trusts may now create an Individual Memorial Scholarship Fund in the name of a deceased member, a foundation, or a trust with a single contribution of $25,000 or more. This will establish an individual scholarship fund, and each year in perpetuity the proceeds of this Fund will contribute to Yale University in the individual name in support of scholarship. This one time contribution may be added to at any time and is tax deductible.

The Club is always receptive to feedback from its constituents. We are here to improve our programs and reflect what you would like to see more of from the Club. If you have ideas or feedback for the Club, please let us know by emailing

Michael F. Hanson II ‘65
President, Yale Club of Southwest Florida
