Giving to HGSE

Giving Priorities

HGSE Fund gifts are allocated to the school’s most pressing need: financial aid for incoming students. This means that 100% of your gift will support the next generation of innovative leaders in education. 

Give to HGSE and support the next generation of passionate educators and innovative leaders.

When you make a gift, you give peace of mind to an aspiring academic who is the first person in his family to pursue a postgraduate degree. You help a dedicated young teacher afford her master’s so she can return to her hometown’s high school as the next principal. You open the door wider for students from all walks of life to be able to join the HGSE community.

Make a Planned Gift

Planned giving is an excellent way to support the work of HGSE while lowering your overall tax liability. The most common forms of planned giving are trusts or annuities that pay income or a lead trust, which pays money to HGSE from your estate, lowering the tax burden of your heirs. To learn more about how planned giving works, call the Harvard University Planned Giving Office at 800-446-1277 or email
