Sponsorships


The dinner also provides an opportunity to for us to showcase our sponsors to our diverse community. HCSF is a non-profit organization that does not receive any funding from Harvard University. HCSF puts on about 100 activities per year, conducts alumni interviews for all Harvard College applicants from the area, and maintains a scholarship endowment to help fund the need-based financial aid of Harvard undergrads from the Bay Area. We try very hard to keep events affordable for all Harvard alumni – particularly to those who are giving back to their local communities. We offer special support for recent grads, senior alumni, and alumni working in low-income, public interest positions. This is made possible by the generous support of our sponsors. As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, a portion of sponsorships for HCSF are tax deductible.

For this year’s Annual Dinner, we are offering sponsorship levels with the following benefits. Sponsorship costs are reduced for non-profit organizations.
