Supporting Oval Office

Thank you

From Harvard Square to the Oval Office has benefited from the generosity of numerous supporters over the years. In particular, we thank Barbara Lee. Her commitment and support of the Oval Office program has been critical to its growth and success. In the spring of 2006, she announced an endowment gift of $1.5 million dollars to establish The Barbara Lee Women in U.S. Politics Training Program and Lecture Series, a critical component of the Oval Office program. Together we will continue to work towards the ultimate goal of achieving gender parity in government and across the political spectrum.

We also wish to thank Joanne Egerman for her continued and strengthened support of the Oval Office program. The Beatrice Koretsky Bleicher Memorial Endowment Fund also provides resources to enhance the impact of this program.
