A lot! As a registered 501(c)3 non-profit, the club receives no funding from Harvard University or the Harvard Alumni Association. We use dues and other donations to support our charitable endeavors, including:
Our Book Award, which is given to local high school students during their junior year, rewarding them for their hard work and community engagement. For students from under-resourced schools, this award may be the first time they consider applying to Harvard.
Our community service intern stipends, which go to current Harvard students doing summer projects in the DC area.
Annual scholarships for DC area students who attend Harvard.
Schools Committee events and trainings for alumni interviewers and newly-admitted students.
No. At this time, we do not have a private facility. However, our University Club Partnership Membership may be a good choice for you - our agreement provides assistance finding sponsors for membership, as well as a significant discount on initiation fees. Please email us for more details.
In most cases, yes. Our Crimson, Ivy, Veritas, Green and Silver memberships are all tax-deductible. Our University Club Partnership membership is not tax deductible, due to the value conveyed with regard to reduced University Club fees.
Joining is easy! Simply go to our membership page, choose the level that's right for you, fill in your information, and submit your application! We'll approve your membership as soon as we verify your eligibility.
Yes! As long as one of you is eligible to join the club, you can join as a couple. When you sign up for membership, you will gain access to our members' area, where you will find a coupon code that will allow your spouse to join for 50% off your membership price.
YES, of course! We serve the DC area, and many of our members live in Maryland or Northern Virginia. We also have members who visit the DC area regularly, or have moved away but still want to keep the connection with the Club. If you find value in our offerings and want to join, we want you to join us - even if it's just virtually or while you're in town visiting!
Signing up is easy! Just click on the event you’re interested in, scroll down to the bottom, and click the plus sign until you have the number of tickets you need. Then, click the “Get Tickets” button, and they’ll be added to your cart! When you’re ready to check out, click the “proceed to checkout” button in your cart, fill in your information, and you’re all set!
Please let us know if you can’t make it to an event! Just send an email to email@example.com, and we’ll take care of it. If you’ve paid for a ticket to the event, we will do our best to find someone to take your place, in which case we will issue you a credit for a future event.
We are in constant conversation with physicians and public health experts about our COVID policy, to ensure that we are taking the appropriate precautions. At this time, we ask that if you have recently tested positive or have symptoms, you do not attend in-person events. The Club encourages everyone to be vaccinated and boosted, and to wear masks indoors when not eating or drinking, especially when social distance cannot be maintained. If you purchase a ticket to an event, and you cannot attend because you are unwell, we ask that you let us know in advance so that we can credit your payment to a future event. Note: Occasionally, a venue’s stricter policies may take precedence. We will try to note those policies on any relevant events.
Your options depend on what kind of event it was! For virtual events, you can access our webinar library, and watch it at your leisure. For in person events, while we can’t make any promises, an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, letting us know you’d like us to try to do another similar event is never a bad idea!
