About the Associates

Harvard College Fund Associates are an extraordinary community of generous alumni, parents, and friends who provide the annual support that allows Harvard College, the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, and the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences to pursue their academic missions. Leadership gifts help Harvard sustain core commitments, seize new opportunities, and respond to emerging needs.

Associates hail from 82 classes, ranging from the Class of 1936 to the Class of 2020, and include 7,367 College alumni; 549 College parents; 256 Graduate School alumni; and 782 faculty, staff, and friends of Harvard.
