Help Make the Extraordinary Possible

When you make an Associates gift, you join a select community of generous alumni, parents, and friends who champion the Harvard community. Associates help students and faculty pursue ambitious discovery and research in service of a better world. Collectively, Associates make it possible for Harvard leaders to face new challenges, seize opportunities, and change lives. 

Shape the Harvard Experience

Associates provide resources that Harvard's leaders can immediately use to support:

  • Advising and academic resources for our students
  • Athletics
  • Curriculum development
  • Faculty recruitment and retention
  • Graduate fellowships
  • Modernizing classrooms and research spaces
  • Research computing in all academic divisions
  • Scientific research core equipment and staff
  • Student life programming
  • Undergraduate financial aid

Join a community of leaders and help Harvard scholars thrive.
