As we enter the holiday season, we are honored to reflect on the ways in which you all have contributed to the success of Harvardwood over the past year -- we continue to experience overwhelming growth and are optimistic about the future of our organization.
This year we've reached an outstanding milestone – growth to over 5,000 members worldwide! In addition to astounding growth, this year we've seen the addition of our newest corporate sponsor, Ameriprise, to the Harvardwood family; the development of two new Chapters in Oregon and Savannah, GA, and the re-launch of our Chicago Chapter (click to join if you're in any of those areas!); writers from Harvardwood's Most Staffable List gain representation and other significant steps forward in their careers; actors from the Harvardwood Talent Group land roles on CSI NY, HOUSE, and CASTLE, to name just a few; the Harvardwood Film Festival honor award-winning director, Lauren Greenfield '87 at the screening of her film THE QUEEN OF VERSAILLES; and more! To get a sense of just how far we've come you can review a more comprehensive list of 2012 accomplishments here!
With unprecedented growth come some growing pains, however. As always, we are committed to maintaining all of our existing programs, as well as building toward an overarching goal of utilizing the arts, entertainment, and media as powerful forces for positive social change -- but we simply cannot do this on dues payments alone. It is imperative that we continue to expand our fundraising and sponsorship initiatives to support and sustain Harvardwood's growth and well-being.
Here are a few ways in which you can support Harvardwood:
1) MAKE A CASH DONATION (click here to make an online donation or for information on where to send a check)
2) MAKE AN IN-KIND DONATION (we are specifically looking for access to local venues and food/beverage donations for events and programs throughout the year. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on contributing in-kind donations)
3) BRING IN A SPONSOR (click here to learn more about ongoing sponsorship opportunities with Harvardwood)
We thank you for your ongoing volunteer efforts, the support of your dues, as well as the many other ways you continue to enhance the Harvardwood community. We remain committed to keeping dues affordable so that the opportunities created by Harvardwood are accessible to everyone. To assist in that effort, we ask that you would consider making a donation to Harvardwood in this holiday season. Your donation will help us further develop our administrative staff support, continue to expand our offerings, and ensure the longevity of Harvardwood and its resources. All donations are tax-deductible as allowed by our 501(c)(3) status.
You can make your donation online here, or send a check or money order to Harvardwood, PO Box 461503, Los Angeles, CA 90046. Harvardwood donors will receive special recognition on our website as well as recognition at selected events and programs throughout the year. They will also receive invitations to periodic exclusive VIP Harvardwood events.
We are grateful for gifts of any amount -- thank you for your consideration!
Mia, Allison, Adam, Stacy, and the Harvardwood Board
