About

$4,006

The Herald proudly claims the title of Yale’s only weekly publication. It populates dining halls and dorm rooms, offering a detailed look into the most noteworthy issues and events of the week. Our writers cover a wide span of topics, including arts and culture, local politics, humor, opinions, and creative work.

But printing the Herald is expensive, and we need your help. We have an indefatigable group of editors, designers, and contributors who come together every week to make a paper. Your contribution will ensure that we can continue to share our work with the Yale community. It is our firm hope that the Herald will continue publishing its work for decades to come; in order to make secure this future, we ask for your assistance.

Printing costs run approximately $960 per issue—more than $10,000 a semester—with our only revenue coming from ad sales and, to a lesser extent, the Yale administration. To ensure that our editorial board can maintain a print presence on campus, our fundraising goal is $4,000. As a registered Yale organization, any donation you make counts toward your annual tax-deductible contribution to Yale University as a whole. Any donation, no matter the size, is greatly appreciated.

And there are other ways to get involved as well. If you’re an alum, we’d love to hear from you! Please feel free to reach out to our Editor-in-Chief (fiona.drenttel@yale.edu) if you’d like to know more. And, as always, you can keep up with us on www.yaleherald.com.
 

With thanks,

Yale’s Most Daring Publication since 1986, The Yale Herald

Fiona Drenttel, Editor-in-Chief

Risks and challenges

Creating an entire issue each week is a lot of work, we won't deny it. But our editors, writers, and designers get the job done every time. We want the resources to publish their work for the campus community to see.
