Learn About How People Donate to the Harvard Community Education Foundation

We formed Harvard Community Education Foundation to help students and teachers find and go after educational opportunities that they wouldn’t have otherwise except through the gracious donations made to the Foundation. We aim to help every child have a meaningful and cultured education.

Goals
Among its several goals, the foundation board has set a goal to create an endowment fund of $1,000,000 that will provide funds in perpetuity to help it meet its mission and objectives.

How You Can Help
In order to generate money to meet the above stated goal of a $1,000,000 endowment, the foundation holds an annual ball and auction. The items to be auctioned are donated by various businesses, organizations, and individuals, and contribute immensely to the overall financial success of the event. You can help by donating goods and/or services to be used in the silent or live auction at the annual ball.
