The mission of Harvardwood Helps is to identify ways to deepen Harvardwood's commitment to community service. We aim to raise awareness about causes of interest and community service events to Harvardwood members worldwide.
In 2013, Harvardwood Helps launched a new grant-giving program, Harvardwood Heroes, to spotlight and support those members of the Harvard community who have made an exceptional contribution to the community, specifically at the intersection of arts and service. Grant recipients do not have to be Harvardwood members, but they do have to be Harvard students, alums, staff, or faculty.
The deadline to apply for a 2015 Harvardwood Heroes has passed, and we will announcement this year's Heroes recipients in November 2015. We will begin accepting 2016 Harvardwood Heroes applications in late Summer 2016.
If you have any ideas for public service events, projects, or organizations that you would like to see Harvardwood support, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, check out past Harvardwood Helps events for ideas!
