The Yale Club of New Hampshire is an organization of alumni and related family members dedicated to furthering the Yale community both within its own group and in social and cultural outreach across New Hampshire. The Club seeks to promote Yale’s values of disciplined curiosity, intimate sharing of ideas, social commitment and a nurturing appreciation for the arts, while enjoying the resources that the Yale Alumni Association can bring to bear. As both individuals and as a group, the Club is committed to extending Yale’s resources and values within our state, while promoting a heightened sense of community among our alumni and families.
The Yale Club of New Hampshire’s activities include efforts that support and extend AYA programs such as the Yale Day of Service and the Yale Book Award. The Club began working with Cross Roads House at the annual Day of Service and subsequently promoted and enhanced the program to make it a year round outreach. In the past year the Club has expanded the Yale Book Award to several more high schools across the state. The Club also facilitates social and educational programs for its members and the broader Yale community, including those that draw from Yale University talent. For example, the Club’s annual meetings usually feature a lecture from a Yale faculty member, the most recent of which was Constitutional scholar Akhil Amar, and it sponsors other cultural events, such as the historic Harrisville tour led by fellow alumnus Dan Scully.
The Yale Club of New Hampshire also funds an annual scholarship for a currently matriculating student. The scholarship goes to someone who is already receiving aid from Yale and thus helps the University defray its expenses.

Currently the Yale Club of New Hampshire is funded through donations and through dues. It is a 501(c)3 non-profit and depends entirely on member support to sustain its activities. Annual dues are $25. In 2012, there were 46 dues paying members, representing 4% of Yale alumni in the Granite State. The Club has set a goal of increasing participation to 10% by 2014, the club’s 50th anniversary.
The Club’s priorities for the coming years are focused on growing its cultural and social outreach programs and on promoting better opportunities for Yale alumni and other members to come together and engage in dialog across all corners of the state.
