Harvard SAR is mainly supported by private donations. Please consider donating to this crucial and often life-saving program today.

To make an online donation, please click here. There is no need to login. (1) Indicate the amount of your donation. (2) When asked to "Select a Fund," choose "other" and write "Credit Harvard Scholars at Risk, Fund 348556" in the space for "Gift Details" that will appear below. (3) Then follow the remaining steps.

Please note that, while Harvard Business School manages the donations page, and while your receipt may not mention "Scholars at Risk" by name, HBS will not be receiving these funds. Your designation in the "Gift Details" box will ensure that Harvard SAR receives your gift.
