Give to the Harvardwood Heroes Fund

The Harvardwood Heroes grant-giving program supports Harvard-affiliated individuals who are dedicated community service volunteers.

Every year, we give several several grants of $500 each to volunteers who have demonstrated an exemplary level of commitment and service to their organizations of choice (giving priority to arts-related projects). Read more about previous Harvardwood Heroes and their service projects.

By donating $500 or more, you can sponsor at least one Harvardwood Heroes grant. If interested, you may also participate in the selection process of this year's Heroes.

If you or your company chooses to donate $2000, you will be named outright sponsor of this year's Harvardwood Heroes program. As the official sponsor of Harvardwood Heroes, your name (or your business name and logo) would be featured in all Harvardwood Heroes promotional materials, including mailings to our membership base of almost 6,000 Harvard alums worldwide, our website, and our active social media accounts. Your brand will receive widespread recognition among our alumni who are trendsetters, top executives, and successful professionals across all industries.
