A Toolkit for Harvard College Fund Volunteer Fundraisers
Alumni and parents who give back to Harvard continue a time-honored partnership across generations. A gift is an investment in Harvard’s mission and aspirations, an endorsement of its leaders, and a meaningful way to demonstrate appreciation—for your experiences, opportunities, and friendships. Thank you for your time, your energy, and your partnership in shaping the future of Harvard.
When you volunteer for Harvard, you work with Harvard College Fund staff, alumni and parent leaders, and fellow committee members who are here to guide and support your efforts. This network offers a variety of resources to help you achieve your goals, including:
