The Foundation

The Harvard Club of New York Foundation was founded in 1953 and has assisted over 400 New York City students in realizing their goal of attending Harvard College. The HCNY Foundation is a non-profit corporation organized to foster scientific, literary, and educational interests among members of the Harvard Club of New York City, to provide scholarships for students at Harvard University and to advance the interests and promote the welfare of Harvard University.

The HCNY Foundation’s recently launched website is dedicated to these activities and help inspire our members and other Harvard alumni to join this important initiative. The website also includes the functionality to make on-line donations for continued financial support, so please visit to learn more.
