The Littauer Society at Harvard Kennedy School recognizes donors who give $1,000 or more to the HKS Fund during a fiscal year (July 1 to June 30). These donors, who give at leadership levels, provide critical funding for Harvard Kennedy School that can be used immediately to address core needs.

Every year, the Littauer Society’s generous donors fuel essential programs—such as financial aid for more than half of the students at the Kennedy School—while providing seed funding for groundbreaking endeavors in everything from social innovation to digital technology and governance.

Members of the Littauer Society are recognized in Harvard Kennedy School’s annual Report of Giving according to their level of giving. They also receive special access to on-campus and regional events, and have additional opportunities to engage with faculty, students, and members of the HKS community. Littauer Society membership is available at the following levels.
