Despite the world being wealthier today than at any other point in human history, one billion people still live in extreme poverty. In most cases, we want to help, but hesitate because we don't know how, and the problems seem too large, too distant and too complex. The goal of the Harvard Giving Pledge is to enable Harvard students to give back in a thoughtful, meaningful and effective way.
Our aim is to change Harvard’s culture toward giving and encourage as many graduates of Harvard College (as well as students taking on paid summer internships) to donate 1% of their income to the most effective charities. We currently have a team of about 20 people working on this project. If you want to help in any way, contact us below. Let's make this project a success this year, and for all the years to come!
