How to Donate

HSPDS is currently undergoing a major fundraising drive, reaching out to alumni and family members for the support of competitive debate. After all, by conducting debates, we allow our students to assert themselves and show their talent, and therefore buy essay online and donations mean a lot for the continuation of our educational activities. There are two ways to donate:

Donating by Check

The check should be made payble to “Harvard University” with “Harvard Speech & Parliamentary Debate Society” in the memo line of the check. The check should include the full name and address of the donor, so that the Student Activities Office can mail the donor a gift receipt. The check can then be sent to the following address:

Harvard Speech & Parliamentary Debate Society
Student Organization Center at Hilles
Box 268
59 Sheppard Street
Cambridge, MA 02138

Donating Online by Credit Card

You can make a gift through Harvard using a credit card by visiting this page. Under “Gift Designation,” please choose “Harvard College Fund Designation: Unrestricted.” Under “Joint Gift Credit,” enter “Harvard Speech and Parliamentary Debate Society, Fund 330250″ in the “Additional Information” box to ensure that the gift is allocated to the gift fund correctly.
