SAC Grant Guidelines

Events must align with the mission of the Harvard Foundation SAC.  This year, you do not need to be a SAC member to apply for funding. However, SAC member orgs will be given priority in the grant funding process. SAC sponsored events must be inclusive of everyone in the college and be on campus. Collaborative events co-sponsored by SAC groups will receive a 20% bonus in capped grant amounts. SAC meeting absences and missing grant summaries will trigger deductions. For detailed guidelines, restrictions, and procedures, please consult the 2021 - 2022 SAC Guide.

Grant Summary

The Harvard Foundation expects each organization to use granted money for the purposes specified in the original grant application. It is also expected that an organization submit a project summary, including all information requested on the Project Summary Guidelines. This form will be sent out to organizations after receipt of grant funding from the Harvard Foundation. The organization is required to fill out this form no later than the end of the semester (Dec 19th). 

If an event does not occur, the organization is expected to return all granted funds to the Harvard Foundation. The organization will be required to submit a grant summary for the cancelled event, with the description of the event being "event cancelled."

If an organization has insufficient records of legitimate expenditures or does not submit a project summary, funding for that organization will be reduced by 50%. Checks will not be available until the Harvard Foundation receives confirmation from your faculty advisor that your organization has been in contact with him or her regarding this semester's events.
