  • I donated to the campaign for the class gift because I wanted to be part of a larger group of donors who could say, “Look what my graduating class was able to do for our institution.” The GSD also provided me with a very generous scholarship for two years, and I want to make sure that future students have the same opportunity that I was provided. Matthew Singh MUP ’13
  • Alumni generosity supports the programs that made my GSD experience remarkable. For me, being a member of Harvard’s lifelong community is a great privilege so giving to the GSD lets me do a part to help fund a remarkable experience for future GSD students. Scott G. Pobiner MDesS ’03, DDes ’10
  • The Loeb Fellowship program at the GSD expanded my career opportunities and gave me exceptional connections with professional colleagues. Today it brings outstanding resources to GSD students. I want to make certain the program continues its high level of achievement. Jean Cormack King LF ’73
  • The GSD has not only given me an education but also an identity, which I am proud to wear among many esteemed colleagues. Our GSD community is fueled by the new ideas, diligence and ambitions of its youngest crew, and our contribution is a small token of support and recognition. Richard Y. Lam MArch ’06
  • Giving my time to the school has reconnected me with alumni, introduced me to so many more and allowed me a window into the minds of the students with which we eventually collaborate. The GSD is changing. My practice and my thought process are better for having re-engaged with this amazing place. Jennifer Luce MDesS ’94
  • It was an honor to attend, and my time there gave me the tools to be a leader in the real estate industry. I want to give to the GSD to ensure the institution only grows stronger, so others can enjoy the same opportunity that I did! Ryan Edward Dings MDesS ’11
