Make a Gift
Our progress has been made possible by institutional, governmental, industrial, and alumni support. Their financial generosity, intellectual guidance, and enthusiasm sustain our educational and research mission: within the classroom, across the campus, and around the world.
The Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences strongly values current use funds.
Such gifts give SEAS the flexibility to respond to immediate financial needs and support its core mission: teaching, research, and translation.

Gifts of Securities & Mutual Funds
Making a gift of securities is both simple and tax efficient because you receive a double tax benefit. With a gift of appreciated securities, you are entitled to a federal income tax charitable deduction if you itemize your return. For appreciated securities held longer than one year, you may deduct the full fair market value of your gift. A second tax benefit with a gift of appreciated securities is that you avoid any capital gains tax.
To make a gift of stocks, bonds, or mutual funds, please call the Harvard Management Company toll-free at (866) 845-6596.
A planned gift can enable you to support SEAS (including gifts
through the College and GSAS) while providing income and tax benefits to
you and your family. Through gift planning vehicles such as bequests and life income gifts, you can address personal financial goals and make a meaningful gift to Harvard.
Individuals who have planned a bequest or donated a life income gift are welcomed into the John Harvard Society.
