The Littauer Society recognizes generous individuals who give $1,000 or more to the HKS Fund in a fiscal year. These gifts provide cornerstone funding upon which the School relies to propel teaching, learning, and research initiatives.

Littauer Society members receive recognition in the Annual Report of Giving and Alumni Engagement, and are given special access at HKS events and to digital opportunities that connect them with faculty, students, and other members of the HKS community. In addition, in 2019 we held events for members of the Littauer Society in Cambridge, New York City, Los Angeles, Washington, DC, and London, during which they held conversations with faculty members and alumni about topics at the forefront of our world.

Unless otherwise noted, donors at higher giving levels will receive all stewardship at and below their giving level.
