Giving Back to Saybrook

Monetary Gifts

Gifts from alumni are a vital resource to Saybrook, and a wonderful way to help ensure access to our programs for future generations. If you would like to make a contribution to support new program development, scholarships for students, or simply help in whatever way is needed, please make an online donation here.

Alumni Legacy Scholarship Referrals

Aside from monetary gifts, one of the most impactful ways that you can give back to Saybrook is to recommend the next generation of practitioner-scholars and leaders to our institution. Our goal is to recruit exceptional students like you who will continue on the humanistic tradition of Saybrook while forging the pathway to innovation, transformation, and discovery.

Complete this short survey to refer a friend, family member, or colleague who is interested in learning more about our degree programs and if they enroll in one of our degree programs, they will receive a $1,000 Alumni Referral Scholarship for their first year in the program. The scholarship will be awarded in $500 installments over their first two semesters.
